A new water tunnel facility has been designed for application in skin friction and boundary layer research. The closed loop, recirculating facility with working section 200 Ã— 600 Ã— 2400 mm and test surface 600 Ã— 1000 mm has been designed to operate at working section flow speeds of up to 2 ms-1 (Reynolds number based on test surface length 2.2 Ã— 106). A force balance enables the direct measurement of drag on test surfaces. Hot film, pitot and multi-hole pressure probes are used to investigate the near wall flow.
