Wind Tunnel Consulting and Design

For many years FKFS has operated various wind tunnels for vehicle development work as well as basic research. The wind tunnel operation comprises a modern full-scale aeroacoustic wind tunnel, a scale model wind tunnel and a thermal wind tunnel. Furthermore, numerical studies by means of a digital wind tunnel are being carried out.

As a result of this, FKFS and its employees have extensive expertise at their disposal in many areas of wind tunnel planning, realisation and particularly in wind tunnel operation. Additionally, the research-based nature of FKFS substantiates the extensive expertise. FKFS with its scientists not only provides wind tunnel operation for industrial clients but also drives the research and development of wind tunnel technology. The latter is demonstrated by numerous publications and patents.   

 

In particular, the combined know-how of wind tunnel operation, research and design experience has proven to be extremely important, for instance when purchasing large components like balances, belt systems or fans. Only those who have practical experience in operating complex systems can uncover their weak points, address these when making new investments, and eliminate them by appropriate recommendations. 

 

FKFS provides this know-how with pleasure to interested clients in consulting projects and corresponding training courses.
