Scientific Description
The German-Dutch Wind Tunnels, was established by the German Aerospace Center DLR and the Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory NLR. DNW is a non-profit foundation under Dutch law, with headquarters in the Noordoostpolder in the Netherlands. Its tunnels are situated in a number of locations in the Netherlands and Germany: Noordoostpolder, Amsterdam, Braunschweig, Göttingen and Cologne. DNW operates its own large, low-speed facility and the aeronautical wind tunnels of DLR and NLR. DNW provides solutions for the experimental simulation requirements of aerodynamic research and development projects. These projects can originate in the research community (universities, research establishments or research consortia) or in the course of industrial development of new products. Most of the industrial development projects originate in the aeronautical industry, but the automotive, civil engineering, shipbuilding and sports industries have also benefited from DNW’s capabilities.
