Aerodynamic, propulsion, loads and aeroelasticity (flutter) testing can be accommodated. The tunnel shell consists of reinforced concrete with a smooth painted interior finish which provides low-turbulence, clean airflow. A honeycomb section located upstream of the contraction ensures uniform velocity distribution throughout the test section
