Goodrich donates icing wind tunnel to university

  • 06-Feb-2009 03:36 EST

Goodrich Corp.'s Sensors and Integrated Systems team in Burnsville, MN, has donated an icing wind tunnel to Iowa State University. The tunnel will be the university's first wind tunnel to be able to perform icing physics research and will be housed in Iowa State's wind simulation and testing (WiST) laboratory. The WiST lab is an experimental facility for conducting research, education, consulting, and outreach for applications in wind engineering, aeronautics, and industrial aerodynamics. The Goodrich icing wind tunnel will be used to study, among other things, icing effects on alternative energy generators such as wind turbines. Goodrich currently works with Iowa State scientists on other environmentally focused technologies such as optimized gas turbine engine fuel burn for clean combustion.
