Abstract

In the present study, we use wind tunnel model as a medium to calculate and analyze the flow velocity of the air passes through any aerodynamic medium and besides automobile too. An experimental study was carried out on a wind tunnel to evaluate and optimize the performance and results of the model obtained. Experiments were carried out with four different instruments, i.e., Yaw Sphere, Claw Yaw Meter, Pressure Sphere (multi-hole probe), Turbulence Sphere to obtain velocity data. According to the experiments and studies carried out, Pressure Sphere provides us with exact velocity and pressure value when compared to the other three instruments. Using this new kind of instrument, faults can be minimized when compared to the previous instruments.
