Abstract:

A study was made of design techniques for low density wind tunnels operating with high stagnation temperatures and hypersonic flow. An approximate boundary layer analysis was developed to predict feasible ranges of operating conditions for low-density wind tunnels. Detailed calculations were made for three nozzles including boundary layer corrections for isentropic contours.
