One of the world's biggest gasdynamic tubes intended for studying heat-mass transfer in the turbulent boundary layer on an ablating surface is described. It is shown that the facility can be used to simulate the heat-mass transfer and ablated shapes of meteorites and other bodies travelling in the atmosphere.
