Gamesa and Technical University of Madrid to develop a wind tunnel

The facility is set to become a benchmark in Europe as it will enable the performance of extremely advanced aerodynamic, aeroacoustic and aeroelastic measurements. “This aerodynamic tunnel will be cutting-edge by any measure: there is no other facility in Europe in which all of these tests can be performed in combination, offering applications not only for wind power but also for the railroad and civil engineering industries”, said Carlos Conde, Dean of UPM. He went on to stress that “UPM is, without a doubt, the university institution best placed to carry out this initiative due to the numerous groups of researchers that have worked on advanced fluid mechanics and aerodynamics in recent decades.” Meanwhile, Antonio de la Torre, Product Development Manager at Gamesa, explained that this new tunnel will allow the company to perform advanced full-rotor (three blades and hub)...
