This semester I am in the last part of my senior design project. Last semester we designed our plane and this semester we get to build a wind tunnel and RC model. One to conduct tests on, the other to fly! We have not begun building our flying model yet but a couple weeks ago we finished our wind tunnel model and had the opportunity to test it in the low speed wind tunnel. It was really exciting!!! I know I am labeling myself as a total nerd with my excitement but it was seriously one of the highlights of this entire semester. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy the epic nerdiness...
The Final Product. Isn't it a beauty?!!!
The Brink Apex
Now for some pictures from the actual test:
Our plane in the tunnel
Our team, the tunnel, and the Brink Apex.
We added trip strips to disturb the flow. That is all I will say about that to avoid sounding more nerdy than I already do.
This is the only picture I have of the model in the tunnel while it was running.
That is all for now. I hope you enjoyed a peek into my life. God Bless!
