Facility Manager for the Low-speed Wind Tunnels at the Department of Aerospace Engg., IISc
The Department of Aerospace Engineering at IISc houses several low-speed wind tunnels that are used for research and industrial consultancy purposes. This consists of the Open Circuit Wind Tunnel (OCWT; 14ft x 9ft test section; largest in India), several other low speed tunnels of smaller size and one closed-circuit water tunnel. A large variety of instrumentation, such as force balances, dynamic force rigs, hotwire anemometry, Particle Image Velocity (PIV), probes for measuring unsteady pressure, and data-acquisition systems, is used for carrying out measurements in these facilities. There are nearly 20 students and staff working at these tunnels doing research and testing. The OCWT is the largest wind tunnel facility of its kind in India and is primarily used for industrial consultancy; it has catered to almost all the national aeronautical and space programmes so far. The OCWT also houses a CFD centre, to carry out combined experimental and computational studies. The Department now seeks to recruit a Facility Manager who will have overall responsibility for the operation of these low-speed wind tunnels and
whose duties will include:
• Ensuring proper and effective functioning of the wind tunnel facilities including the heavy-duty equipment and measuring instrumentation. Ensuring high up-time through routine maintenance and liaison with suppliers and service providers.
