ABSTRACT

The wind tunnel which is located in the experimental aerodynamics laboratory of the Innovation and Advanced Technology Centre of Lublin University of Technology, Poland is characterized by a closed circuit, oriented in the horizontal plane with two measuring spaces as an environmental space for measuring chamber and an additional smaller space for high-speed measuring chamber. The first one, with dimensions of 1275x1415 mm allows to obtain maximum speed of 60 m/s, the second one with dimensions of 1800x2000 mm allows to obtain maximum speed of 30 m/s. Each chamber allows for weight and pressure testing of whole aircraft models, and planned experiments will enable development of new and optimization of existing aircraft structures. These two measuring spaces are interchangeable whenever is required.

Gyrocpoter model Tercel made by Aviation Artur Trendak company is an ultralight aircraft with a takeoff weight of 560 kg. It is a two-seater machine in a side-by-side arrangement allowing flights with visibility up to 3,000 m at a distance of up to 600 km. The structure is a self-supporting composite cabin with an aluminum mast and lifting rotor blades. It is equipped with a 135 hp engine, which is a modification of the Rotax 912 engine - a turbocharging system and a fuel ejection system were developed in cooperation with the Lublin University of Technology.
