Case Study: Morocco Wind Tunnel Makeover

We were tasked with modernizing a poorly designed wind tunnel in Morocco. After performing 3D scanning of the entire aerodynamic duct, we used CFD simulation to analyze how the existing design affected flow quality and energy efficiency. We then proposed a set of improvements that would significantly enhance both.
