Abstract : The research programs in hypersonics at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are discussed. The hypersonic shock tunnel and the calibration shock tube are described. Programs in nonequalibrium fluid dynamics, rarefied gasdynamics, and plasma physics are described. Theoretical studies are devoted to nonequilibrium inviscid flow. (Author)
