Automotive Wind Tunnel and Road Test Equipment

Scanivalve pressure scanners are used in automotive wind tunnels worldwide to improve the efficiency and vehicle dynamics of race and production autos.

For production car development, automotive wind tunnel tests help designers create the ideal blend of aerodynamic efficiency with pleasing aesthetics.  In race car development, wind tunnel tests provide designers with the critical information needed to design the ultimate aerodynamic profile to maximize performance and tune the vehicle dynamics.  Scanivalve equipment is used by several major F1 wind tunnels, as well as other open wheeled category teams and stock car teams participating in NASCAR series races.  For the most critical of tests, like those found in F1 wind tunnels, Scanivalve pressure scanners’ small size, high accuracy and rugged reliability provide an excellent solution.  These same scanners can be used for pressure
measurements in full scale, on-car road tests.  For either automotive wind tunnel tests or on-car road tests, Scanivalve has a pressure measurement solution no matter what the application.
With our experience in both production development tests and F1 wind tunnel and road tests, Scanivalve engineers will be able to meet the challenge and support you no matter what.
