Consultancy support from skilled aerodynamicists has proven indispensable for some of the most advanced technology.
HORIBA MIRA has the UK’s only full scale aerodynamic wind tunnel providing a cost-effective solution for aerodynamic test and development for a wide range of applications from automotive vehicle benchmarking and development, motorsport, aerospace, wind engineering and sport sectors.
Our aerodynamicists are available to offer consultancy support, if required.
Using HORIBA MIRA’s experience and aerodynamic wind tunnel our customers are able to compress the development lead times for their projects and minimise their costs to deliver right-first-time products to market ahead of their competitors. HORIBA MIRA’s full scale wind tunnel (FSWT) has consistently delivered accurate results and delivers data consistent with a wide range of vehicle manufacturer owned tunnels worldwide.
Aerodynamic force measurements available are drag, side force, lift, yaw, pitch and roll and yaw angles are +/- 180deg. Data acquisition is via a 62 channel pressure measurement system with transient output of forces and moments. Frontal area measurements can be taken in an area adjacent to the test section and flow visualisation during testing can be performed in various ways including conventional smoke wands, wool tufts and fluorescene.
Use of the wind tunnel allows our customers to do more aerodynamic development and validation testing with the advantages of guaranteed, repeatable conditions and lower overall developmental costs.
