The article presents the way how the existing small vacuum aerodynamic tunnel IT (Institute of Thermomechanics) has been adapted for the measurement of the aeroelastic properties of the NACA 0015 airfoil and of the blade cascades composed of various types of blades with two degrees of freedom, pitch and common plunge. Attention was focused on the possibility of studying self-excited vibration at lower subsonic speeds. The modification of the test section is based on the knowledge gained during the study of self-excited airfoil oscillation.
