Magnetic Suspension and Balance System
[ Testing Equipment ]

This MSBS is manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.(MHI) on the basis of the collaborative investigation with National Aerospace Laboratory in Japan (NAL).
NAL has continued their research independently since NAL succeeded in magnetic suspension in 1987 for the first time in Japan. Then, MHI has recently added some original improvements to this MSBS. MSBS provides an ideal way of supporting a model for wind tunnel tests because the forces and moments to support the model are generated by magnetic field controlled by the coils arranged outside the test section. There is no support interference problem because any mechanical support system is not needed in the flow field. MSBS will expand new wind tunnel testing because of examining various kind of three-dimensional body without any mechanical support system in wind tunnel.
