Test facilities

Optimizing the wind resistance of aircraft wings, wind turbine blades, building elements and race cars - all of these require aerodynamic design, which is the expertise of the Eiffel wind tunnel. Built in Paris by Gustave Eiffel in 1912, this laboratory, a subsidiary of the CSTB Group, simulates the effects of wind and air on reduced-scale models. Various tests ensure the durability and comfort of structures. The teams at the Eiffel wind tunnel guide industrial companies of different sectors in designing efficient and sustainable projects.
