Abstract:

A Mach 3 to 7 blow-down wind tunnel facility for investigating boundary layer phenomena in the transitional and turbulent range is described. The facility, referred to as the Boundary Layer Channel, utilizes a flexible plate and a flat plate to form the two opposite walls of a two-dimensional supersonic nozzle. The plate is 8 feet long. The channel operates at supply temperatures up to 1000 deg F and supply pressures from 0.1 to 10 atmospheres. The Reynolds number per foot capability is from 30,000 to 2.4 x 10 to the 7th power.
