The Medium-Sized Low-Speed Wind Tunnel (MWK) is a circulating wind tunnel (Göttinger type) with free jet measuring section and circular jet cross section.

Three different nozzles with diameters of 1.0 m, 1.4 m and 1.75 m are available for paving. The achievable speeds are in the range of 56 m/s, 37 m/s and 24 m/s, respectively.

At the edge of the free jet measuring section, a frame is attached which, among other things, contains a height-adjustable lifting table which can be positioned at any height in the jet or outside the jet.

In order to vary the direction of the flow towards the installed model, a turntable is integrated in the lift table, which is controlled via a programmable logic controller (PLC).
