Appalachian Amusement Center [www.verticalwind.com]
Appalachian Amusement Center operates a large wind tunnel used for sky diving training. The primary fan for the tunnel measures 14 feet in diameter and accelerates air to over 130 mph. Propulsive Wing worked with Appalachian Amusement to upgrade the fan with a new blade design. The new blades offered a 5% improvement in efficiency, reducing the cost of running the system and increasing the maximum air speed. In addition, the blade natural frequencies were tuned to offer smoother, vibration-free operation, decreasing wear on the system.
