Abstract : A significant improvement in the data acquisition and numerical computation capabilities of the Turbulence Research Laboratory was achieved by: 1) the upgrading of the data acquisition system to a PDP 11/84, 2) the addition of a micro VAX work station, and 3) the upgrading of the central computing array processor. All facilities are linked with Ethernet thereby providing for very high speed data links from the laboratory to the VAX Cluster and Array Processor. Also, the facilities are linked by NYSERNET (59k baud) to the NSF supercomputer network. Keywords: Turbulence free shear flows; Unsteady heat transfer; Gas turbines; Hypersonic vehicles.
