Description

Monash Wind Tunnel is the leading low speed automotive aerodynamic test facility in Australia. We support aerodynamic and wind noise research and the development of full-scale production vehicles for Australian and international markets. The facility also provides research and development capabilities for many other industries. These include ground transportation (trains and trucks), wind energy siting and turbines, aerospace (particularly unmanned air vehicles and microflight technologies), as well as, sports aerodynamics and fundamental aerodynamic research.
