  • Patent number: 11585729
    Abstract: A duct body (101) of a blowing device provided in a chassis dynamometer includes a bottom wall (31), a top wall (32) and a pair of side walls (33) that form a flow passage having a rectangular cross section. In each of the side wall (33), a vertically elongated window part (42) is formed for enabling the passage of vehicle restraint member such as a chain (5). Each window part (42) is closed through the tiled arrangement of a few cover plates (53, 54), and a chain plate set (100). The chain plate set (100) is formed through the sandwiching of an elastic sheet member (61, 62) having a restraint member through hole (63) and a slit (64) between an inner plate (51) and an outer plate (52) each having an opening part (57, 58).
