Abstract:

The report reviews the characteristics and uses of a number of hydraulic devices, in particular, of those used in the Hydraulic Analogy Laboratory of the Aerodynamics Department of O.N.E.R.A. hydrodynamic tunnel, supersonic tank gamma 2, hypersonic analogy assembly, etc. These items of equipment are used for visualisation of the flow around models by means of suitable methods. They made it possible, in a large number of cases, as shown by the results quoted by way of example, to make a qualitative, or even quantitative contribution to aerodynamic research work carried out by other means.
