WindEEE Dome - Man-Made Tornadoes

Western University, London, Ontario July 18 2014
Filming at the WindEEE Dome, the Wind Engineering, Energy and Environment Research Institute at Western University; London, Ontario. The world's first three-dimensional wind testing chamber. They can simulate all kinds of winds, including... Straight-line winds, downbursts and... Tornadoes! This state of the art facility was still in the testing and commissioning phase when we visited. Eventually, it will be used for engineering experiments that require three-dimensional control of wind flow.
