Abstract : The report reviews the characteristics and uses of a number of hydraulic devices, in particular, of those used in the Hydraulic Analogy Laboratory of the Aerodynamics Department of O.N.E.R.A.: hydrodynamic tunnel, supersonic tank (gamma = 2), hypersonic analogy assembly, etc. These items of equipment are used for visualisation of the flow around models by means of suitable methods. They made it possible, in a large number of cases, as shown by the results quoted by way of example, to make a qualitative, or even quantitative contribution to aerodynamic research work carried out by other means.
