Enhancing U.S. competitiveness: NASA hypersonics research and wind tunnel programs: hearing before the Enhancing U.S. competitiveness [microform]: NASA hypersonics research and wind tunnel programs: hearin Aerospace plane technology [microform]: research and development efforts in Japan and Australia: repor. This report provides an update of the hypersonic aerothermodynamic wind tunnel test program conducted at the NASA Langley Research Center in support of the X program. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite Reston, VA The wind tunnel tests are providing information about how the vehicle’s design performs aerodynamically over a range of speeds from takeoff to hypersonic flight approaching a Mach number of 15 (15 times the speed of sound). In the early phases of the program, screening tests were conducted in the Langley Inch Mach 20 Helium Tunnel.
The REST intake was tested in an arc heated hypersonic wind tunnel (NASA Langley Arc Heated Scramjet Test Facility) with a freestream Mach number of , shown in Fig. 14 (b). Experimental results indicated that the intake typically captured approximately 96% of the available airflow while the simulated calculation was very close to %. NASA's Wind Tunnel Program Office should proceed with the design and development of new subsonic and transonic facilities while conducting the four design trade studies noted in Finding c during the design phase of the wind tunnel program. HTV-2 was a crewless, experimental hypersonic glide vehicle developed as part of the DARPA Falcon Project. In the two flight tests in / the 'waverider' was carried inside the nose of a.

Vehicle aerodynamics has its roots in aviation, and the same is true for the related experimental techniques. The wind tunnel is the key carry-over element. Wind tunnels have been adapted stepwise to meet the specific needs of vehicle aerodynamic studies. Graduate Student Researchers Program (Section II) The NASA Graduate Student Researchers Program (GSRP) attempts to reach a culturally diverse group of promising U.S. graduate students whose research interests are compatible with NASA's programs in space science and aerospace technology. Each year we select approximately 80 new awardees based on. In the hypersonic wind tunnel in Caltech's Guggenheim Laboratorywas nearing completion, and that summer Lesterwas persuaded by Clark Millikan to return to Caltech as a member of the faculty and to assume responsibility for directing hypersonic research.
