History

After 1945, this tradition was continued by his successor, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Paul Riekert. Following the repair of damages incurred during the war, the wind tunnel has been available to the German and European automotive industry for two decades, making a considerable contribution to the leading position of Germany in the field of vehicle aerodynamics. Professor Riekert continued his work on vehicle dynamics that he had started before the war, and he developed the »Stuttgart Friction Meter« for investigating the non-skid property of tire-road combinations.
