The Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory is located on the first floor of Goodwin Hall in room 140. This new laboratory is equipped with the Open-Jet Wind Tunnel a 6"x6" water tunnel, smoke tunnel, equipment for the dynamic and static testing of simple structures, and electronic instrumentation workstations. The water tunnel includes a laser Doppler anemometer, used for undergraduate research and experiments. This laboratory forms the focus of much of the lab work done in AOE 3054 Experimental Methods (the required laboratory course for all AE or OE Juniors), AOE 4154 (required for AE Seniors) and AOE 4254 (required for OE seniors) and thus all undergraduate students get hands on experience of this equipment. The lab is also equipped with USB based data acquisition systems that students get to use with their own laptop computers to take data and design their own experiments.
