ARNOLD ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT CENTER ARNOLD AFB TN
Pagination or Media Count:
A theoretical real-gas analysis of the expansion tunnel is presented. A digital computer program, developed for this investigation, is discussed and Fortran listings and flow charts are included. Tunnel performance, test gas slug length, and working parameters are given for several expansion area ratios. Driver temperature and energy requirements are given for specific cases.
