The Aerodynamics and Acoustics Facility (AAF), was formerly named the CLP Power Wind/Wave Tunnel Facility (WWTF). The facility is one of central research facilities at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). The facility was first opened by the Hon. Tung Chee Hwa, Chief Executive of Hong Kong SAR, the Chancellor of HKUST, and the Hon. Michael D. Kadoorie, Chairman of CLP Holdings, on the 9th of June, 2000. Between 2015 and 2019, the facility was redeveloped with a brand new state-of-the-art low-noise wind tunnel, and world-class large acoustic testing laboratories, focused towards to a new era of modern and exciting aerodynamics and acoustics research and development.



Racing Car CFD

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tools were applied by an FYDP project supervised by Prof. Zhang to study the aerodynamics of a generic LMP racing car model. The CFD support was provided by AAF's engineer to train and advise the students on their CFD activities. 


Ambular Project

Preliminary wind tunnel tests were performed for the FYDP project lead by Prof. Larry Li and co-supervised by Dr. Ryu Fattah. The project is an ongoing effort as part of the Ambular Project (http://ambular.org)


Particle Image Velocimetry

PIV is an effective non-intrusive flow measurement technique used in wind tunnel testing. AAF recently performed some PIV to enlighten students on the complex fluid structures formed behind a circular cylinder in the large low-speed wind tunnel.
