HIGH SPEED, HIGH RESOLUTION, & HIGH CONCENTRATION

V-ONSET

V-ONSET (Vertical Water Tunnel)

Vertical Octagonal Non-corrosive Stirred Energetic Turbulence

  1. Small mean flow to keep rising bubbles/falling particles in the view area
  2. 88 individually-controlled high-speed jets
  3. Strong energy dissipation rate
  4. Octagonal test section enabling many optical accesses
dust

Horizontal Dust Tunnel

Dust storm, dust trails, and dust dispersion problems

This tunnel can be operated in two different conditions
  1. Constant dust concentration throughout the entire test section
  2. Clean incoming air
This tunnel can be used for validating dusty airflows in many different applications.
porous

Refractive-Index-Matching Porous Flow

Multiphase Flow in a Porous Medium

  1. Fluorescent subsetting
  2. Refractive-index matching
  3. 3D Tracking
