NASA uses wind tunnels to test scale models of aircraft and spacecraft. Some wind tunnels are large enough to contain full-size versions of vehicles. The wind tunnel moves air around an object, making it seem as if the object is really flying. Most of the time, large powerful fans blow air through the tube.

The object being tested is held securely inside the tunnel so that it remains stationary and does not move. Join NASA scientists and engineers at NASA Langley Research Center, one of the most extensive wind tunnel facilities in the world, as they study air flow around objects at different wind speeds.

Learn what kinds of objects can be tested in the various kinds of wind tunnels. This book describes the very unique testing capabilities of several historic Langley wind tunnels, such as the gigantic 30 x 60 ft Full Scale Tunnel, the Vertical Spin Tunnel, and the Free-Flight Tunnel.
