  • 3 Wind tunnel test of the EOLE airborne launcher

    The model of the Eole airborne launching demonstrator in the throat of the L2 wind tunnel at the Lille center... This will be a test rig able to carry rocket models and to release them, mainly to understand the interactions between the two vehicles at the moment of releasing, but also to predict the flight behavior and qualities to supplement the wind tunnel tests and calculations

  • 5 ONERA wind tunnel division offer

    The offer of the ONERA wind tunnel division is shown in this film made during tests performed for the Italian aircraft manufacturer Piaggio. From model manufacturing to wind tunnel testing, we introduce our sites at Lille, Fauga-Mauzac, Modane, and its experienced teams
  • 6 Colored coatings in a wind tunnel

    Under the action of the wind tunnel's airflow, the air's friction drags on the coating and reveals the separated and/or vortex flow areas... Although it is very instructive, it is also very difficult to implement and can only be used in test conditions in a wind tunnel
  • 7 Nicetrip test campaign in S1MA wind tunnel

    Testing of a European Tilt-rotor project (Nicetrip) in the large S1MA wind tunnel of ONERA. Tests on a tilt-rotor model, that is to say the aerodynamic configuration of an aircraft where the rotors can tilt in flight, have been completed in the large S1MA wind tunnel at Modane, France... The test in the wind tunnel was essential, due to the complicated architecture of the aircraft concept, with a tilt-wing as well as a tilt-rotor
  • 8 The very large S1MA wind tunnel ... at the core of the scientific community

    A very unusual test was conducted at the ONERA Modane Centre from the 7th to the 11th of July: a scientific experiment on the scale of the large wind tunnel, under conditions that have never been met before... A group of European scientists, who usually have neither the financial resources nor the opportunity to use large wind tunnels, were able to install a large number of sensors inside the S1MA wind tunnel during a single experiment, in order to study turbulence and improve the fundamental physical understanding of the phenomena in this area
  • 9 Testing of a the NICETRIP convertible aircraft project in ONERA?s large wind tunnel S1MA

    Tests on a convertible aircraft model, that is to say, the aerodynamic configuration of an aircraft where the rotors can tilt, have just been completed in ONERA? s large wind tunnel S1MA in Modane... The wind tunnel testing stage was essential for the complicated architecture of this tilting half-wing configuration and especially to assess the behaviour at high speeds and in the rotor tilting phases
  • 10 ONERA hosts 122nd Semi-Annual Meeting of the Supersonic Tunnel Association International

    Thirty-eight wind tunnel operators and experts, representing twenty-eight worldwide organizations (as far away as Australia), attended the three day STAI- 122 Meeting, hosted by ONERA, October 5th through 7th, at the Centre Paul Langevin in Aussois. Organized by the ONERA Wind Tunnel Division, the technical program and Modane-Avrieux center tour were a great success, and all attendees were very impressed by the ONERA suite of large wind tunnels they visited
