Flow behavior in the Thermal Engineering and Applied Hydraulics Laboratory (LABINTHAP) wind tunnel was investigated by measuring the velocity profiles, turbulence intensity and wall effects with a hot wire anemometer. Measurements were carried out under wind speeds 5, 15 and 30 m/s in planes located at 1.8, 2.6 and 3.4 m from flow inlet to the test section. The flow showed a good quality with a velocity variation less than 1%, turbulence intensity lower than 4% and the wall effects allow having an excellent work area in the test section for the velocities evaluated.
