Kurt Humphreys ATOC 1070 Pre Lab Wind Tunnel Experiments: Wind and Pressure with Real World Application Objective: The objective of this lab is to see how wind flows over and around obstacles in its way. We will also see the relationships between the wind speed and the pressure the wind exerts and the affects of high winds on objects. There are three parts to this lab. The first part we will use a wind tunnel to observe the wind and pressure relationships when air flows across a flat surface. Two instruments will measure these two affects, the pitot tube sensor and a turbine anemometer. We will compare the data we got to the theoretical data and compare the two with a spreadsheet. We will then measure the effects on wind model vehicles, and use that to predict the effect of what would happen when wind hits a regular full sized vehicle. The final thing we will do is measure the distribution of pressure per unit area when air flows over a model Quonset hut. This will

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
