The report is written to present the work done on the Final Year Project entitled 'Development of a Subsonic Wind Tunnel in UTP - Selection of the Flow Visualization Device'. Themain objective of the project is to perform research anddevelop a subsonic wind tunnel in UTP and also to study and perform the flow visualization experiments on the developed wind tunnel. Without a wind tunnel, the learning and understanding process on topics related to flow behavior become more difficult. Also, since the wind tunnel's working medium, air is not visible under normal conditions, flow visualization method is essential to make the flow visible. Those are the problems that trigger the idea to initiate this project. This project will cover scope of works on the research of the available wind tunnel design criteria, research on flow visualization methods, the selection of the most suitable design recommendation on wind tunnel, selection of most suitable flow visualization method, the design and fabrication of the wind tunnel and model to be used, the experimental procedure of the selected flow visualization method, materials required to perform the experiments and also results and findings from the performed flow visualization experiments. Various methods used in undertaking this project in order to obtain the best results, which include project planning, researching, weekly meetings with supervisor and technicians, and performing the experiments. A lot of findings have been obtained from this project. The findings obtained are in term of wind tunnel dimensions and final design, materials to fabricate the wind tunnel, fan selection result for designed wind tunnel, flow visualization experiment procedures, materials required for experiments, model and test section design, findings from both flow visualization experiments, coat estimation and conceptual design of a smoke generator. From the designed wind tunnel, the air speed inside test section is 12 m/s with test section cross sectional area of 30cm x 30 cm. Byproper work, this project can yield a great output. This project can bring a lot of benefit to all parties involved if done successfully.
