An enlargement of the Pilsner R&D park consisted of several new buildings is running nowadays. The University of West Bohemia, New technology Research centre, will be using one of the buildings also for hosting the calorimetric tunnel. With respect to our experience with currently operated calorimetric tunnel with lower power and smaller size, a new tunnel of higher power and better parameters was designed. The tunnel was proposed on the base of 10 analytical calculations respecting wide range of operational regimes and possible different target applications. Together with analytical computations, also some simplified CFD simulations were done. These simulations gave us information about the flow field in the tunnel and especially in the measuring area. Some non- standardized parts of the tunnel were proposed, designed and verified with the use of CFD. The tunnel design together with its parameters and results of CFD analysis are presented in the paper.
