Learn to design and improve state-of-the-art aerodynamic ground testing facilities in this comprehensive reference book, with particular focus on high-enthalpy shock tunnels. Including the latest advances in detonation-driven high-enthalpy shock tunnels, readers will discover how to extend test time with brand new concepts and duplicate real hypersonic flight test conditions. Through a systematic approach, the book describes technologies for a variety of different drivers in hypersonic and high-enthalpy shock tunnels. The fundamental theories for hypersonic and high-enthalpy shock tunnels are described step-by-step, with examples throughout, providing an accessible introduction. Built on years of real-world experience, this book examines in detail the advantages and challenges of improving test flow qualities, including increasing total pressure and enthalpy, model scale amplification and test-time extending for different types of shock tunnel drivers. This is an ideal companion handbook for aerospace engineers as well as graduate students.
