Request Tunnel Time

UW students, faculty, and staff

The wind tunnel is scheduled and staffed on a quarterly basis - please submit all requests before the start of each quarter. Reservations are prioritized as follows:

  1. Academic Courses
  2. Faculty Research
  3. Student/RSO Use

If you did not plan your test before the start of the quarter, you must submit requests at least one month in advance. Wind tunnel reservations are subject to staff availability.

After your reservation is confirmed, you must meet with the Test Engineer at least 1 week before your test begins for a model review and operational training (it is recommended that you allow 2 weeks in case your model or test plan needs to be amended and re-reviewed). Please contact to schedule a meeting with the Test Engineer.
