Scientists at Florida International University built a hurricane machine called “The Wall of the Wind”. The world's most powerful artificial hurricane will help researchers test building materials and buildings for strength against hurricane force winds, the Air Force reports.
Such experiments led to a reassessment of the strength of buildings and ways to protect against hurricanes. The machine consists of 12 giant fans. Meteorologist Erik Suln says that a research facility allows meteorologists to understand what damage can be caused by hurricane force winds to various buildings.
“The Wall of the Wind” can mimic a fifth category hurricane. Periodically, meteorologists add water to the system because hurricanes are often accompanied by heavy rain.
Thanks to these tests, Florida also found a new way to strengthen roofs.
