Abstract
The design and development of the DCIEM Cold Chamber Wind Tunnel is outlined. This tunnel is intended for use in experiments in physiology in which men are subjected to temperatures as low as -46C (-50F) and windspeeds in a range from 0.2 to 10 m/s (0.4 to 22 miles/hour). The tunnel contains a treadmill within a 2.4 m by 2.4 m (8 ft by 8 ft) test cross-section, incorporating outside observer stations. The test section can be dismantled to facilitate removal from the Cold Chamber and, the main fan structure can be moved on air cushions to one corner of the Cold Chamber for more efficient space utilization. Experiments to improve flow uniformity in the test section are outlined in detail.
