Intermittent Wind Tunnel

A wind tunnel in which energy is stored, usually as compressed air, and then released suddenly to force a large quantity of air through the small throat of the nozzle and over the test model in the test section in a short period of time. The test gas is then captured in a vacuum dump tank or released into the atmosphere.
