Abstract : The symposia was conducted at the outset of a new era in hypersonic aerodynamics. The proceedings therefore present a valuable stock taking of the status of the field in a comparable lull in the last decade. A particular gap exists in the field of experimental facilities. At the same time, new developments in computational fluid dynamics and experimental techniques provide possibilities that did not exist ten years before. The papers presented were grouped in the fields: Experimental facilities; Experimental techniques and results; Computational techniques; Design methods; and New projects. The most, significant result of the symposium was a perspective of the needs for special effort in the near future.
