Abstract:

Shock waves superposed on hypervelocity flow in a solid propellant driven tunnel were used to simulate the conditions experienced by a re entry vehicle encountering a blast wave. The flow velocity and high stagnation temperatures produced were measured using currently available techniques. This research was conducted to de velop a technique for determining the shock loading on re-entry vehicles. Author
