The thermal wind tunnel at FKFS is a high performance 2-axle roller dynamometer test bench in a Göttingen Type wind tunnel. On this test bench, a wide range of holistic vehicle testing can be carried out independently of the season and weather conditions. Furthermore, on-road vehicle testing can be realistically simulated in the thermal wind tunnel.
The thermal wind tunnel is used for thermal management and soiling experiments as well as for performance measurements and vehicle part functionality tests. We offer a multitude of options for different wet conditions and the impact of spray, as well as for air flow measurements and visualization around and through the vehicle. This allows us to offer custom-tailored solutions for our customer needs.
The thermal wind channel is paired with prototype-secure vehicle preparation workshops and vehicle storage options.
