We analyze the new Danish Poul la Cour Tunnel (PLCT) facility using 2D and 3D Computation Fluid Dynamics simulations, with the aim to address the need for wind tunnel corrections. The assessment of tunnel corrections is based on 2D free simulations representing undisturbed airfoil flow, 2D tunnel configurations and a full 3D tunnel setup using laminar/turbulent Improved Delayed Dettached Eddy Simulations. By comparing lift, drag and pressure distributions and detailled flow patterns, the influence of the 2D and 3D tunnel is evaluated. In the present study a NACA 633-418 airfoil is investigated in the tunnel.
