China’s Aerodynamic Testing and Research Capabilities Gain New Progress

The high-power arc wind tunnel, large-size supersonic wind tunnel and two-teraflop computer system newly completed by the China Aerodynamics Research and Development Center (CARDC) were put into use on September 3, 2012, marking that China’s aerodynamic testing and research capabilities have achieved new progress.

The CARDC is mainly responsible for carrying out aerodynamic testing and research tasks for the model selection and standardization of various aeronautical and astronautical vehicles of China. It is the only aerodynamic testing and research organization in China with a complete set of facilities well-matched in small, medium and large sizes and with all three research means of wind tunnel testing, numerical calculation and model flight testing.

With the development of China’s aviation and aerospace industries, the center has been vigorously strengthening the construction of its test equipment and test technology system in recent years. The two wind tunnels and one computer system newly built and commissioned this time will effectively expand China’s wind tunnel testing capability and numerical simulation capability, so as to provide strong technical support for the development of aeronautical and astronautical vehicles.
