Pininfarina Wind Tunnel
The facility started activity in 1972, for full scale aerodynamic tests. During years, it has been continuously updated. Nowadays it is still used for aerodynamic measurements but, thanks to its low noise configuration it also become a “state of the art” instrument for internal and external aeroacustic measurement on cars, buildings, scaled models of airplanes, etc.
During the visit, guests will access to the control room and test section, see instrumentation available and discuss about noise measurement techniques.
