Abstract

Aerodynamic forces are important in many racing sports and all those which use projectiles or any kind of ball. For all of them, the wind tunnel becomes one of the most efficient tools to improve the athlete performances and to coach as well. Coaching demands a lot of time wind tunnel occupancy, so its operating cost is very relevant. Advantages of specifically developed wind tunnels and possibilities of tests are discussed.
