Abstract:

The capabilities of the NSWC Hypervelocity Wind Tunnel 9 have been extended to simulate higher altitudes. A second ejector has been installed to allow operation at a supply pressure of 60 psia. Compression heating has been used to increase the supply temperature. High quality flow is obtained in a large core diameter. Static forces and moments on a subscale model have been successfully measured in a series of verification tests.
