The ULg wind tunnel participates in the SIMBA research project, aimed at the development of aerodynamic simulation technology for buildings. The project looks at both internal and external flows.

The wind tunnel is involved primarily with the external flow parts of the project. Two flow cases will be investigated, flow around a bridge section and flow around a tall building. Experimental results obtained in the wind tunnel will be used to validate simulation results obtained by the project partners.
