  • 1 closed-loop wind tunnel, ELD, Inc. model 407(A) (test section 2’x2’x4’, 3-13 m/s)
  • 2 Dell T7810 workstations with Matlab, Fluent (Dual Intel Xeon Processor E5-2620, 16 GB DDR4 RAM)
  • 1 Vacuum/Inter Gas Oven (TMVacuum T/IG 800 Series)

Joining the Renewable Energy Laboratory

Unfortunately, no research assistant positions are available at this time.

Please note the SJSU does not have a Ph.D. program.

Room and Wind Tunnel Booking

The calendar below shows existing appointments to use E-141 and/or the wind tunnel. If you would like to use the facilities, please choose an available time and email me at with your request. If you wish to use either of the wind tunnels, I will need to approve the equipment and method, and I'll conduct a short (~15 minute) training session at a mutually agreeable time. Please be advised that you must provide your own measurement devices (pitot tubes, force transducers, etc.) when using the wind tunnel.
