Wind Tunnel Testing for UW STEM Building

Ambient Air Technologies, LLC performed wind tunnel testing to simulate the lab exhaust on the proposed University of Wyoming STEM (ENZI) Building Mechanical Systems. Ambient created a scale model of all surrounding buildings and houses within a ½ mile radius to perform the testing. The proposed exhaust systems of the ENZI building (in blue) as well as the surrounding buildings were analyzed to determine how local winds will affect exhaust plumes and outside air intakes. Based on the outcome of the testing the design team was able to determine proper heights of exhaust stacks and proper locations of outside air intakes.
