Kingston University - Principles of Flight + Wind Tunnel Testing

Innovation Zone

We will use a small benchtop wind tunnel to test simple glider designs to ensure that they fly well. In particular, we will be looking at how to find the neutral point in wind tunnel testing. We then use this to position the centre of gravity to ensure stable flight. Short presentations on the principles of flight will also be included to help understand why the neutral point and centre of gravity are so important
