Wall of Wind

Open Jet[1] is a large scale wind engineering testing facility at Louisiana State University.[2][3]

In addition to aerodynamic testing at large-scale and high wind speeds, the facility will allow for wind-driven rain testing of building envelope as well as destructive testing of low-rise test buildings constructed with actual materials. The open jet testing will advance knowledge in the field of wind engineering for coastal hazard mitigation and enable the development of more effective design criteria, engineering solutions, and products helping to reduce risks associated with the use of conventional design provisions.[4]
