GTF1 reached the highest turbulence Reynolds number in Windtunnel

Record Taylor Reynolds Number in the Wind Tunnel of the MPIDS

On 4th Aug 2016 the high-pressure wind tunnel of our institute delivered the first possibly record-breaking results. Owing to the high pressure SF6 in the tunnel and the recently completed active grid, a Taylor Reynolds number, which is a measure of how turbulent the flow is, of 6600 was produced. (As a comparison, the highest Reynolds numbers in the atmosphere are about 10.000.) Such a high Taylor Reynolds number has not been measured before in a controlled wind tunnel experiment.


A new approach to highly resolved measurements of turbulent flow - by Puczyłowski et al.

In this open-access paper, published in Measurement Science and Technology, we present the design and principle of a new anemometer, namely the 2d-Laser Cantilever Anemometer (2d-LCA), which has been developed for highly resolved flow speed measurements of two components (2d) under laboratory conditions. We will explain the working principle and demonstrate the sensor's performance by means of comparison measurements of wake turbulence with a commercial X-wire. In the past we have shown that the 2d-LCA is capable of being applied in liquid and particle-laden domains, but we also believe that other challenging areas of operation such as near-wall flows can become accessible.
