Abstract : Since 1965 the Aerodynamische Versuchsanstalt Gottingen (DFVLR) includes a space aerodynamics division. Flow problems in rarefied gases at hypersonic speeds rank among the main tasks. The experimental work is based on the hypersonic low-density wind-tunnel plant which comprises the vacuum wind tunnel equipped with two test sections, and the high-vacuum tunnel which has additional installations for the application of the molecular beam technique. A comprehensive description of these experimental plant and of the necessary special instrumentation for carrying out force, pressure, heat transfer and temperature measurements including the application of the electron beam technique is given.
