In this experiment ten boundary layer thicknesses were measured in a water tunnel at
different Reynolds numbers and were compared to theoretical values for laminar and
turbulent regions according to the Blasius theorem. Photographs were taken depicting
bo
Abstract
This experiment consists of measuring the flow velocity in a water tunnel in order to
determine the calibration factor, and of visualizing the flow over three different bodies. To
measure the flow velocity 5 samples of time were obtained in order
Objectives
Determine the wind tunnels calibration factor for the experiment.
Obtain lift and drag forces for the NACA 4412 airfoil.
Develop the coefficients of lift and drag of the airfoil at 4 different Reynolds
numbers.
Obtain the polar graphs of th
Objectives
Measure the normal pressure distribution around a wing of uniform NACA 0012
airfoil.
Calculate lift and drag forces from the pressure distribution
Calculate the pressure coefficient (CP), lift coefficient (CL), and drag coefficient (CD)
Intr
Objectives
Measure the pressure ratio between the throat of the nozzle and the inlet, and
compare it to the theoretical value.
Use the Schlieren optical system to observe waves at the exit of the nozzle.

In this experiment there sets of aluminum diaphragms were performed in a shock tube in
order to study and visualize the propagation behavior of shock and expansion waves across
the tube. Nitrogen gas was used as the driver gas and air as the driven gas. T
