The ULg wind tunnel participates in the Multi-Φ research project, aimed at the development of true multi-physics simulation capabilities. The ultimate objective is to integrate such simulations in the design stage, thus leading to a 'numerical rapid prototyping' approach.

The ULg wind tunnel is involved in the experimental validation of such simulations, especially in the domains of fluid-structure and thermo-fluid-structure interaction.
