Abstract:

The design of a diffuser and heat exchanger for a hypersonic aerodynamic test facility is presented in detail. This diffuser and heat exchanger are an integral part of the Flight Dynamics Laboratory Four Megawatt Electrogasdynamic Test Facility. Convective heat flux from 9000F air to the diffuser wall and heat exchanger tubes is analyzed. Thermal and mechanical stresses are predicted as part of a complete design. Auxiliary equipment required to give a complete cooling system is described.
