Wind Tunnel

Using complex algorithms, Wind Tunnel simulates air flow as it passes over a static object such as an aerofoil, car, truck or plane.

Choose your object, set your parameters and watch as smoke and particle effects help to visualise the air movement over the object, demonstrating the concepts of drag and lift, turbulence, velocity and pressure.
