Atmospheric Entry Test Facilities: Limitations of Current Techniques and Proposal for a New Type Facility

Abstract

For many years, considerable efforts have been underway to develop aerodynamic test facilities in which atmospheric entry phenomena could be adequately investigated. The techniques under development comprise wind tunnels of various types, aeroballistic ranges, and counterflow facilities. Theoretical and practical limitations of these facility types are… (More)
