Abstract : Predicted values of the important performance parameters for the Aeronautical Research Laboratory's new 30-inch (nozzle exit diameter) hypersonic wind tunnel are discussed. Included are curves giving tunnel Reynold's numbers per unit length, flight Reynold's number (with simulation capability indicated), degrees supersaturation, mass flow rates, normal shock recovery pressures, vacuum system characteristics, and running times.
