The Langley 14x22-Foot Subsonic Tunnel is a closed-circuit, atmospheric tunnel designed for powered and high-lift configuration testing up to 200 Knots. The test section can be configured in several ways: fully-closed, slotted, partially-open, or fully open using its movable walls and ceiling. Rotary wing platform testing includes: performance, loads, acoustics, and fluid physics. The non-intrusive flow measurement systems, resident in the facility, greatly complement the data productivity for complex powered lift configurations. Current model testbeds include complete rotorcraft experimental platforms of 15% and 25% scale, as well as an isolated rotor test system for basic flow investigations of i nteractional aeromechanics.
