A brief review of current shock-wave related research projects within the Aerodynamic Research Department at the Calspan Corporation is given. The subject areas discussed are divided into three basic groups 1 Application of conventional shock-tubeshock-tunnel techniques to obtain heat-flux distributions on flight vehicles, to study transonic shockboundary-layer interactions, and to obtain rate-coefficient measurements 2 Relatively new applications of established shock-tubeshock-tunnel techniques, and 3 Discussion of new techniques specifically developed to improve the accuracy of shock-tunnel simulations.
