Among their topics are characterizing a novel polymeric drift control agent in a vertically oriented low-speed wind tunnel, the impact of spray adjuvants on the physical properties of the solution and size of the spray droplet, using modified trisiloxane alkoxylates to control trisiloxane alkoxylate foam in superspreaders: a mechanistic study, structure-performance relationships a variety of aromatic polyetheramide comb polymer dispersants, and visualizing urea treatments using micro-X-ray fluorescence spectrometry.

Among specific topics are chemical clustering for risk assessment: fatty alcohol alkoxylates, developing a novel solvent-based formulation for pesticides that are prone to crystallization, spray solution pH and glyphosate activity, and evaluation spray drift using low-speed wind tunnel measurements and dispersion modeling.
They will be tested in simulated flight conditions in Glenn's low-speed wind tunnel to simulate low-altitude aircraft speeds for acoustic evaluation, and also in a high-speed wind tunnel to simulate high-altitude cruise conditions.
"If you were to build a new low-speed wind tunnel today, it would be very similar to ours," says Flanagan.
An overall view of the aeroservoelastic system installed in the low-speed wind tunnel at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering is given in Fig.1.a.
of Energy, actually began in the 1990s with tests of simple scale model tractor-trailers in GTRI's low-speed wind tunnel. While these early experiments with simple models promised dramatic fuel savings, the results from testing on full-scale test vehicles fell short of expectations.
