Flow Characterization of the T3 Hypersonic Shock Tunnel
Flight-tests, computational fluid dynamic facilities and ground-based test facilities are the hypersonic methodologies used to define and to quantify the aerothermodynamic environments that exist during the fly of the aerospace vehicle into the Earth’s atmosphere at hypersonic flight speeds.
