This video is part of a series that show the working of the Hygrothermal Test Facility (HTF) at the sir Frank Gibb laboratory at the school of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering.

In the video the fan plenum creates an air flow on either side of the test specimen between the chambers of the HTF, first at normal speed and then slowed down 8x. The plenum creates an air flow parallel to the wall from the bottom of the chamber towards the top, between the test speciment and a series of baffles to guide the air flow.
