Facilities


The facilities in the Institute are primarily located in the Hessert Center for Aerospace Research as well as the White Field Laboratory.  These modern buildings include laboratories, computer facilities, fully staffed machine and electronics shops, faculty and student offices, and conference and meeting rooms.

The research facilities include numerous high-quality subsonic, transonic and supersonic wind tunnels, as well as specialty facilities such as a high-speed heated anechoic jet facility, an anechoic open-jet wind tunnel, and an atmospheric boundary layer wind tunnel. Specialized laboratories focus on particle dynamics, optical measurements, digital time-series acquisition and image processing, and computational fluid dynamics.
