Hofmann Prüftechnik were recently invited by our customer, CSTB, to attend a meeting in a historical location; a wind tunnel designed and built by Gustave Eiffel, the famous designer/builder of the Eiffel Tower.

Located in the city of Paris, the 105 year old wind tunnel still operates in exactly the same way as it has done for more than a century, and is still used for aerodynamics research.

We would like to extend our thanks to M. Pierre Palier for giving Hofmann Prüftechnik the opportunity to visit this iconic open-return Eiffel type wind tunnel, the first of its kind ever built.
