Sample Run Log

The generic run log is customized for each test. A run log is used to track the progress of the test.; see the Sample Run Log available in .pdf or Excel format. The run log information is also stored digitally for easy recall using a KWT-provided software package called the Wind Tunnel Data Organizer.

Air Speed Conversion Chart

The following chart can be used to determine the approximate air speed in the test section for a given dynamic pressure (q). The tunnel is operated by setting a dynamic pressure. The conversion from dynamic pressure to air speed assumes Standard Day Conditions (temperature =59°F, pressure = 29.92 inHg, 2116 psf, 14.7 psi).

Re/ft is the Reynolds number per foot of reference length. It uses a Standard Day kinematicviscosity of 1.565x10-4 ft2/sec.
