In Malaysia, there exist wind tunnels operated by several universities and organizations. Most of them are actively used for a variety of experimental works that are needed by uncounted educational curricula and aerodynamics related researches. Lately, wind tunnels have even become increasingly accepted as one of common engineering tools in solving of unexpected and abundant wind engineering problems that are continually facing automotive industries, oil and gas companies, as well as governmental agencies and ministries. This paper is meant to present an overview of the existing wind tunnels, accompanied with information on some important technical data, and added, to a lesser extent, with complementary information about backgrounds and design philosophies. The emphasis is, however, given only to those with test section size of 1.0 square meter or larger. From the general point of view, some information about testing capabilities and trends in wind tunnel technology is also presented.
