Equipment

 

LABSON uses the Fluid Mechanics Laboratory in the Terrassa Campus of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

Installed power in facilities include 340 kW for Fluid Power facilities, and two compressors of 100 kW and 25 kW, for Pneumatics..

A closed wind tunnel with 500 mm diameter test section, equipped with an external aerodynamic balance and a high precision positioning robot allows to measure aerodynamic forces on models.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations are performed on our  Linux cluster of 64  AMD Opteron cores and, on demand, on external services, as Marenostrum or Magerit.
