Aeronautic Equipment Designed for Education & Training
TecQuipment specially designed the Aerodynamics range of products for teaching. We placed emphasis on ease of use, reliability and safety. Whether used by lecturers to demonstrate aerodynmic basic principles or advanced ideas, or by students for project work, the educational equipment gives valuable hands-on experience. This experience is not always possible or practical with large-scale industrial or complex research facilities.
First Principles of Aerodynamics
At introductory level, the Aerodynamics range includes our Modular Air Flow Bench (AF10). This is a standard unit with eight interchangeable experiments, each one designed specifically to teach an important first principle, such as Bernoulli’s equation or boundary layer.
Educational Wind Tunnels
The quality and features of our wind tunnels make them ideal for education, for example our comprehensive Subsonic Wind Tunnel (AF100). This is a compact, realistic and high-quality wind tunnel with a wide range of standard instrumentation and models. To maximize flexibility, the engineers at TecQuipment can put together packages of models and instrumentation to meet all your budgetary and laboratory needs. The wind tunnel can also be used for student project work and research.
The subsonic and supersonic wind tunnels work with TecQuipment’s unique Versatile Data Acquisition System (VDAS®).
All of our Nozzles from TecQuipment work with VDAS. VDAS® allows our educational equipment to connect to a computer to provide accurate real-time data capture. Raw data can be transformed instantly into sophisticated graphs and tables using the VDAS® software and easily exported to other programs. There are other solutions on the market, but none which offer the same convenience, functionality or wide range of features.
A wind tunnel is a tool used in aerodynamic research to study the effects of air moving past solid objects. A wind tunnel may consist of a tubular passage with the object under test mounted in the middle. Air is made to move past the object by a powerful fan system or other means. These products help teach students aerodynamic and air flow hands-on.
