directly applicable, but the wind stream has to be calibrated before
use. 32 Wind speed readings distributed across the flow have to be
obtained from which the average wind speed is determined, for a range of
Designed to match the
Windmill, the wind machine develops a wind stream of 1000mm nominal
diameter at a range of speeds upto 10m/s. Wind speed distribution is
reasonably uniform, and silencers are fitted to reduce the noise from
the recirculating fan.
The wind is generated by an eight blade axial flow fan driven by a three phase variable speed, six pole electric motor.
A stator and honeycomb diffuser are installed downstream of the fan to reduce wind swirl.
The Windmill can be attached to the mainframe of the wind machine .
equipment is part of a range designed to both demonstrate and
experimentally confirm basic engineering principles. Great care has been
given to each item so as to provide wide experimental scope without
unduly complicating or compromising the design. Each piece of apparatus
is self-contained and compact. Setting up time is minimal, and all
measurements are made with the simplest possible instrumentation, so
that the student involvement is purely with the engineering principles
A complete instruction manual is provided
describing the apparatus, its application, experimental procedure and
typical test results.
