The article deals with influence of blockage effect caused by vane anemometer in the wind tunnel by measurement via this anemometer. The influences will be represented by correction coefficient. The first part of this article is focused on the design of the impeller of vane anemometers. The impellers are printed on 3D printer with variable parameters. The anemometer is fixed in an open section of the wind tunnel with closed loop and the velocity profile is measured by Laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) in front and behind it for all impellers. The experimental data are compared with the numerical simulation in OpenFOAM. The results are correction coefficients.
