Beyond its physical importance in both fundamental and climate research, atmospheric icing is considered as a severe operational condition in many engineering applications like aviation, electrical power transmission and wind-energy production. To reproduce such icing conditions in a laboratory environment, icing wind tunnels are frequently used. Creating and maintaining a stable icing cloud in the tunnel test section yields different design constraints compared to conventional wind tunnels. In this paper, a comprehensive overview on the design, construction and commissioning of the Braunschweig icing wind tunnel is given. The tunnel features a test section of 0.5m * 0.5m with peak velocities of 40m/s. The static temperature ranges from -25° to +30°C. Both supercooled water and ice crystal icing can be simulated.
