The report contains calculated conditions expected in the test section of the Sheffield University Shock Tunnel. The driver gases used are either cold hydrogen or a mixture of hydrogen oxygen and helium ignited behind the primary diaphragm. Cold hydrogen Tailors at a primary shock Mach number of 6 and the helium mixture used at about 12. The report therefore deals with the primary shock Mach number ranges from 5 to 9 and from 9 to 14 to cover both these cases. The air in the stagnation region is expanded to test section Mach numbers of 3, 4 and 5 depending on the nozzle attached.
