DNW: leading wind tunnel organization for high quality and innovative wind tunnel testing technologysee more
DNW, the German-Dutch Wind Tunnels, was established by the German Aerospace Center DLR and the Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory NLR.
DNW is a non-profit foundation under Dutch law, with headquarters in Marknesse in the Netherlands.
DNW is one of Europe’s most advanced and specialized organizations for wind tunnel testing. DNW’s six wind tunnels include subsonic, transonic and supersonic facilities, and provide experimental aerodynamic simulation capabilities to the user community at large.
The DNW directors Joost Hakkaart and Andreas Bergmann would like to thank Airbus Defence and Space for hosting a wonderful visit of an NLR/DNW delegation to their facility in Manching on 02 February 2023.
On 12 January, our Head Projects and Customer Relation Management, Koen Artois, gave a guest lecture at the TU Delft reinforcing the already good relationship between the university and DNW.
This month NLR AVVA executed airflow measurements on a ship model in the DNW-NWB in Braunschweig. Landing a helicopter on a moving ship at sea is a very demanding task. To guarantee safety and maximum operational capabilities, Ship-Helicopter Operational Limitations (SHOL) are essential.
