Abstract

The Industrial Engineering School, part of the University of Extremadura, located in Badajoz (Spain), has been founded by the European Community under the regional development program of research facilities, and it is actually under the process of construction. The aerodynamic channel is that of the Eiffel type, also called open flow. Thus, it is inside a 25 meter long and 6 by 6 meter wide room, taking the air from the room and evacuating it to the same room without temperature conditioning. The instrumentation included consists of that used to measure the air velocities, such as a pitot-static probe, ultrasonic and hot wire anemometers, differential pressure sensors to record the pressure distribution over solid bodies and an aerodynamic balance to measure forces and moments over sol
