Thermal Wind Tunnel

The Thermal Wind Tunnel at FKFS is a high-performance 2-axle roller dynamometer test bench located in a Göttingen Type wind tunnel. It offers a wide range of holistic vehicle testing, independent of season and weather conditions. Realistic simulation of on-road vehicle testing can be conducted in the Thermal Wind Tunnel, making it a versatile tool for various research and development purposes.

The Thermal Wind Tunnel is utilized for thermal management and performance measurements, soiling experiments, and component functionality tests. With options for different wet and dry temperature-controlled conditions, it provides flexibility for customized testing scenarios. Airflow and spray impact can be accurately measured and visualized for flows around and through the vehicle, allowing for detailed analysis of aerodynamic performance.

At FKFS, we are committed to providing custom-tailored solutions to meet your specific needs, leveraging the capabilities of our state-of-the-art Thermal Wind Tunnel  for comprehensive vehicle testing and research.
