WindEEE (Wind Engineering, Energy and Environment) dome, Prototype design and validation

The Wind Engineering, Energy and Environment (WindEEE) Dome, the world’s first hexagonal wind tunnel, represents a technological breakthrough in the study of wind-related phenomena as it has the capability of physically simulating high intensity wind systems – including tornados, downbursts, gust fronts or low-level nocturnal currents – that cannot be created in any of the existing wind tunnels.
