Thermal Wind Tunnel

The thermal wind tunnel at FKFS is a high performance 2-axle roller dynamometer test bench with closed airflow. On the test bench, a wide range of overall vehicle testing can be carried out independently of the season and weather conditions. Vehicle testing can be realistically simulated.

The thermal wind tunnel is also used for thermal management and contamination experiments as well as for performance measurements and vehicle part functionality tests. Various options for moisture conditions and the impact of spray, as well as for air flow measurements and visualization around and through the vehicle allow many special uses. 

The thermal wind channel is extended by prototype-secure vehicle preparation workshops and vehicle storage options.
