Climatic Wind Tunnels Jules VERNE

The largest of our wind tunnels, The Jules Verne climatic wind tunnel was designed to carry out full-scale tests combining wind and other weather factors (rain, sand, sun, temperature, snow, etc). Tests can be carried out on building components, vehicles or transportation equipment or any system subject to extreme climatic conditions.
