Progress in the development and evaluation of an electrically heated helium shock driven facility is described. The work covered is concerned primarily with a small prototype shock tube. while this tube does not completely meet the requirements one would establish for an ultimate test facility, results from its study do indicate that the attractive features of high performance shock tubes discussed earlier can be achieved. One interesting result of this work is that the prototype facility itself has been found to be useful in the study of hypervelocity stagnation region convective heat transfer problems.
