The von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics has some of the most important and largest wind tunnel testing facilties in the world. Those facilities include low speed and high speed wind tunnels, plasma facilties as the well-know "plasmatron", water tunnel, turbomachinery facilities such as the biggest compression tube in the world "CT-3", ground vehicle facility, wind gallery, water spray, aeroacoustics and solid propulsion facilities, industrial test rigs.
WORLD UNIQUE TEST FACILITIES
FORTY-SIX WIND TUNNELS AND TEST RIGS
COMPUTATIONAL AND THEORETICAL MODELING
For leading-edge research, you need first-rate computing performance , and we have invested and developed in the very best tool for multiphysics computations "CoolFluid", an object oriented platform and numerous commercial CFD codes.
