One of Windtech’s 3 Wind Tunnels

  • Windtech’s wind tunnel No.1 also features a blockage tolerant design in the test section as well as a large plenum design to generate low turbulence for wind tunnel testing of bridge deck sections.
  • Windtech uses an advanced high-frequency force balance and aeroelastic rig designs to accurately determine the overturning moments on the tall building structures.
  • Statistical analyses is carried out of the peak pressure signals to provide a reliable statistical peak pressure.
  • Windtech Consultants use analysis techniques that are a result of 25 years of research and development and represent international best practice standards.
  • Measurements of local wind speeds for Wind Environment Studies are obtained using hot wire anemometry, which is the most reliable technique currently available, particularly in highly turbulent flows.
  • Windtech Consultants can also test the performance of facade elements for quantities such as discharge coefficient, wind-noise generation, rain-noise and the integrity of the facade elements under serviceability loads
