Each tour will take us through the Gelb and Seamans Labs, both recently designed to enhance undergraduates' engineering education by providing facilities, equipment, and space for students to study, design, construct, test and operate aerospace engineering projects. We will also visit Aero/Astro research labs, including the Wright Brothers Wind Tunnel, a subsonic (200 mph maximum) with a pressurized 7 by 10 foot elliptical cross-section. The wind tunnel and its modern data processing equipment are used for airfoil and wing research, development testing, simulation of wind loads on ground structures and other classes of environmental testing.
