The Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel is a state-of-the-art low speed wind tunnel that has been actively involved in aerodynamic research and development since 1949. It was constructed as part of a gift to the University in the late 1940's. It was provided with the best available equipment at the time of its construction and has been frequently upgraded to maintain it as a state of the art facility. It is large enough to perform extensive development tests for a wide range of vehicles and other systems and is well suited for conducting major research efforts in low speed aerodynamics and hydrodynamics. The range of applications for subsonic aerodynamic tests is very broad.
Through more than 2200 tests, the GLMWT has helped collect data on a wide variety of aerodynamics challenges. From airplanes to automobiles and bobsleds to building structures, we have a wide-range of experience addressing diverse aerodynamic designs.
The GLMWT is International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliant and accustomed to handling both export controlled information and confidentiality agreements.
