I’m spending quite a lot of time at the moment just visiting various departments within Saab, getting to know what they do.
I spent a little time today at the climate controlled wind tunnel facility, where they can do various types of wind tunnel testing (though not aerodynamic testing, as it’s too small for that). The wind tunnel can be manipulated to simulate all types of weather conditions, but we’ll tell you more about that later.
They also have a couple of climate chambers there, where they can simulate different temperatures but without the wind effects. While we were visiting, a Saab 9-5 SportCombi was undergoing some durability testing on the rear rear door.
I’ll let the video tell you the rest…..
My thanks to Dennis “the doorman” for the lesson.
