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. A comprehensive experimental study will be performed on the 1/10 scale prototype of the WindEEE dome employing flow visualization, Hot wire and PIV measurements to confirm the CFD modeling results (provided by AIOLOS Engineering Corporation) and to help AIOLOS Engineering Corporation to optimize the design of the WindEEE dome.
