The Flight Demonstration Wind Tunnel (AF4IV) from TecQuipment is an open circuit wind tunnel with a suspended model aircraft designed for classroom demonstrations and learner investigations of the behavior of fixed-wing aircraft and wing performance during take-off and landing. With its open-circuit wind tunnel learners can study the effect of speed on attitude, measure the lift curve for the wing up to and beyond stall, plot trim curves and determine the neutral point and more.
The Flight Demonstration Wind Tunnel performs a variety of practical demonstrations, ‘hands-on’ flight simulations and student investigations into the behavior of fixed-wing aircraft and wing performance. Some of the topics covered include:
Practical investigation of longitudinal stability and control of the aircraft to demonstrate behavior during take-off, level flight and landing
Determination of the effect of speed on attitude for level flight and stall.
Measurement of the lift curve for the wing up to and beyond stall
Students can adjust the center of gravity of the model to alter its trim
They can then plot trim curves and determine the neutral point
Demonstration of phugoid motion in terms of altitude via high speed VDAS®
Short period oscillation due to sudden disturbance can be shown by the change of incidence via high speed VDAS®.
AF4IV Product Details
This model’s open circuit wind tunnel provides realistic simulation of flight and the effect of control surfaces. A digital display shows pilot pressure in the working section, attitude, altitude or lift force on the aircraft along with tail plane angle. With adjustable weight, students can set the center of gravity for the aircraft to different positions from fore to aft of the quarter chord point. Features of this model include:
Providing students a safe, realistic introduction to the controls of a light aircraft
Aircraft able to move vertically and pitch about the quarter chord point independently
Simulate take off, level flight, cruise, and landing
Digital flight control surfaces
Demonstrations include aero foil lift, stall, longitudinal stability, and transient motion
Includes electronic display of Pitot pressure, attitude, altitude, lift and tailplane angle
Includes VDAS® for PC connectivity providing rapid data acquisition and the ability to export and chart data
High speed VDAS® built in for tracing altitude and attitude
Tufts on the wing clearly demonstrate the phenomenon of separation and stall
Bright LED illuminated working section
Adjustable center of gravity of the model
Removable yoke and silencer for shipping and storage
Optional smoke generator (available separately)
