The nature and character of the effect of dust content of the working flow of hypersonic wind tunnels on the results of aerodynamic tests are considered. It is shown that dustiness causes an increase of the drag of slender models and, conversely, a decrease of the drag and damping coefficient of the longitudinal moment of blunt models.
