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. The list of research and development tests carried out includes work on aircraft of many types and many other vehicles and devices some of which are mentioned on our "Examples of our work" page. More than 1800 tests have been conducted to date.
