Fig. 1 Virginia Tech Hypersonic Wind Tunnel The Virginia Tech blow-down type high-speed wind tunnel which operates at speeds ranging from Mach 2 to 7 is shown in Figures 1 and 2. The blow-down type wind tunnel offers run times on the order of a few seconds at .

Wind Tunnels. The Aerospace Sciences Laboratory (ASL) houses a wide range of wind tunnels are available for testing designs. The wind tunnel facilities range from hypersonic flows in a Ludwig Quiet Flow Tube to the Boeing Wind Tunnel, a large subsonic tunnel. Most of the aerodynamic testing of the NASA Space Shuttle and its progenitors was done in this workhorse hypersonic facility. A Mach 50 Wind Tunnel: The Chimera of Helium. The problem with air is that it liquefies too easily. To prevent liquefaction in a hypersonic tunnel, the air must be heated to several thousand degrees Fahrenheit. AEDC Hypervelocity Wind Tunnel 9 is a hypersonic wind tunnel owned by the United States Air Force and operated by National Aerospace Solutions The facility can generate high Mach numbers and high Reynolds for hypersonic ground testing and the validation of computational simulations for the Air Force and Department of : US Air Force. Wind Tunnel Speed Category: subsonic, supersonic, or hypersonic. 2. Country in which the tunnel is located. 3. Name of the installation where the facility is located. 4. Test Section Size: dimensions of the test section (height x width x length) or cross-section diameter. 5. Temperature Range: tunnel’s stagnation temperature(s) in ºR or K. Size: 3MB.

Abstract Benton, James R. Design and Navier-Stoker Analysis of Hypersonic Wind Tunnel Nosla.(Under the direction of Dr. John N. Perkha) Four hypersonic wind tunnel noszlca ranging in Mach numberfrom 6 to 17 are de- signed with the method of characteriatics and boundary layer approach (MOC/BL) and analyzed with a Navier-Stokes solver. Limitatiom af the MOC/BL approach. The series of wind-tunnel tests performed at the Inch Mach 10 facility employed a test matrix that was designed to explore the interaction between the RCS exit flow and the wake of the vehicle over the hypersonic regime of flight. The SS is a flow-through-type balance, which allows a File Size: 3MB. Most of the major international hypersonic °ow facilities were recently reviewed in Ref. [1]; however, this book does not review or catalog all of the major facilities. For North American facilities, the most recent such public-release catalog known to this author appeared as Ref.
