TEAMER Description The 12” Water Tunnel, constructed in 1951,
The 12” Water Tunnel, constructed in 1951, supports smaller-scale hydrodynamic testing and basic research experiments. This facility is a variable speed, variable pressure, air content controlled closed circuit, closed jet recirculating water tunnel. The test section can be configured with both circular and rectangular test sections. Test Section: 0.305 m (circular) or 0.5 m x 0.11m (rectangular), Maximum Velocity: 24 m/s, Pressure Range: 20 kPa – 138 kPa absolute.
Pressure Range: 20 kPa – 138 kPa absolute.  +
