Abstract : A brief review of current shock-wave related research projects within the Aerodynamic Research Department at the Calspan Corporation is given. The subject areas discussed are divided into three basic groups: (1) Application of conventional shock-tube/shock-tunnel techniques to obtain heat-flux distributions on flight vehicles, to study transonic shock/boundary-layer interactions, and to obtain rate-coefficient measurements; (2) Relatively new applications of established shock-tube/shock-tunnel techniques, and (3) Discussion of new techniques specifically developed to improve the accuracy of shock-tunnel simulations.
