Large and Full-Scale Open-Jet Testing

The open-jet facility allows for testing at high wind speeds. Blockage effects are usually minimized by using the open jet concept. The facility is suitable for large- and full-scale testing that permits the determination of aerodynamic loads by eliminating scaling requirements and Reynolds number.
