Abstract : The patent relates to a particle-laden atmosphere reentry-condition simulation system having arc heated air supplied to an expansion nozzle with high speed particles introduced into the air after the expansion of the air. The test device is positioned in the particle laden air stream near the position where the particles are introduced to limit the interaction time between the particles stream and the air stream.
