Water tunnel for Optical Diagnostics Applications (WODA)

This water tunnel has been designed for use with modern optical diagnostics, such as particle image velocimetry (PIV) and laser induced fluorescence (LIF). The tunnel provides good optical access.


cross section60×60 cm2
length test section500 cm
max. flow speed1 m/s
turbulence level< 1%
total volume11 m3

The tunnel was commissioned in 2004. It was constructed by Engineering Laboratory Design, or ELD (http://www.eldinc.com).
