Making A Wind Tunnel

  1. Mar 31, 2008 #1
    I need to make a wind tunnel of plywood for testing a plate fin heat exchanger . the exhaust from the engine is fed through the Wind tunnel and then to the heat exchanger. the heat exchanger of 60 cm in length and fins of 15cm*15cm are welded over it.the temperature of exhaust is around 500'c.

    The diagram of the entire process is given in this link. It a 2MB image file.

    Please help me on making the wind tunnel.

    Thank You

    You really should consider a better host - not many people are going to be willing to view it there.

    In any case, I did view it and I don't really understand what the question is. You just need to build an adapter between the exhaust and the heat exchanger. I wouldn't call it a wind tunnel, though.
