This paper describes the capability and activities on utilizing a low speed wind tunnel facility at Universiti
Teknologi Malaysia (UTM -LST) since its first operation in year 2001 till 2012. The laboratory is setup to meet the educational, research and industrial needs of Malaysia’s developing aero industry. The wind tunnel has high flow quality and can deliver speed up to 288 km/hr. UTM-LST has experiences on a wide range of testing such as aircraft, automotive, civil structure and building, ship and offshore structure. The wind tunnel is primarily equipped with flow visualization facility including Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), pressure measurement, force measurements and Constant Temperature Anemometer (CTA). Most of the primary aerodynamic parameters can be measured in this facility such as measurement of aerodynamic lift and drag, static stability and control derivatives of aircraft. Measurement of automotive drag, down force and crosswind stability, and measurement of wind loads on civil structures. Correlation between wind tunnel measurements and numerical simulation using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are becoming more demanding especially related to unsteady aerodynamics. Currently, research related to unsteady aerodynamics such as helicopter rotor wakes, automotive wake turbulence and oscillating aerofoil are more demanding and requires upgrading to the current facility.
