Tornado/Microburst Simulator

Wind Engineering and Experimental Aerodynamics, Iowa State University

This Windows Media Video uses dry ice and particles to show the flow of air within the Iowa State Tornado Simulator, used for testing models as in a wind tunnel. The video offers a chance to see air motion within the funnel, and also observe how the vortex moves as the tornado speeds across the simulated ground.
