Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel

Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel
The mission of the GLM Wind Tunnel includes the following. The GLMWT team works to advance the level of aerodynamic design of vehicles and other devices by generating appropriate design and development test data. We advance the state of the art in aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, and closely related disciplines experimental research. We advance the state of the art in tunnel testing methods including modeling arrangements, instrumentation, and increasing the integration of computational capabilities for rapid data presentation and rapid comparison of results of measurements, analyses, and computational simulations. We contribute to the education of undergraduates and graduate students by engaging them in our laboratory work, and by providing our capabilities to support their research projects. We provide research and development expertise, service, and education to citizens of the area, state, and nation by being available to companies and government agencies, by hosting visitors and engaging in other activities to enhance and broaden the understanding of the influence of aerodynamics in various human activities.
