Wind tunnel tests

Ad­vances in the field of noise re­search in avi­a­tion, as well as the trans­fer of re­search re­sults in­to ap­pli­ca­tions, de­pend to a large ex­tent on suit­able aeroa­cous­tic wind tun­nel fa­cil­i­ties.

The In­sti­tute of Aero­dy­nam­ics and Flow Tech­nol­o­gy is a lead­ing re­search in­sti­tute in the field of aero­dy­nam­ics/aeroa­cous­tics of air­craft and aerother­mo­dy­nam­ics of space ve­hi­cles. It has two main sites at Braun­schweig and Göt­tin­gen and has a di­vi­sion at the DLR site in Cologne. The In­sti­tute has a to­tal of 362 em­ploy­ees – of these about 70 per­cent sci­en­tists – con­duct nu­mer­i­cal and ex­per­i­men­tal in­ves­ti­ga­tions on air- and space ve­hi­cles. Ex­per­i­ments are per­formed in wind tun­nels and in flight.

Digitalisation and virtualisation in aviation

The new DLR In­sti­tute of Soft­ware Meth­ods for Prod­uct Vir­tu­al­i­sa­tion in Dres­den will pool the skills re­quired to un­der­take the first com­plete vir­tu­al air­craft flight in the long term.

The Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology is a leading research institute in the field of aerodynamics/aeroacoustics of aircraft and aerothermodynamics of space vehicles. It has two main sites at Braunschweig and Göttingen and has a division at the DLR site in Cologne. The Institute has a total of 362 employees – of these about 70 percent scientists – conduct numerical and experimental investigations on air- and space vehicles. Experiments are performed in wind tunnels and in flight.
