Supersonic Test Supersonic Test sg20 (Mechanical) (OP) 15 Mar 12 17:04 Does anyone know of a lab facility that can do supersonic test for a reasonable fee? Your help would be appreciated.Phil RE: Supersonic Test KENAT (Mechanical) 15 Mar 12 19:20 Sustained or just for a short time delta?Many universities will do this kind of work using their labs.

RE: Supersonic Test rb1957 (Aerospace) 16 Mar 12 08:40 any local university (worth their salt) should have a wind tunnel.The fee could be very nominal if you present it as a thesis project (for an undergrad), but then the results would be on the public record (if that mattered).

RE: Supersonic Test kontiki99 (Electrical) 17 Mar 12 09:04 I believe you can hire military/gov facilities. When I was at Pax River all of the test facilities were cost centers looking for paying customers inside or outside the military.Having said that, I don't believe I ever saw wind tunnel facilities, but that wasn't the type of project I was involved with. In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice; experience suggests that in practice, there is. RE: Supersonic Test sg20 (Mechanical) (OP) 17 Mar 12 15:41 I contacted couple of universities and most were occupied with other research works and they must also have other staff member approvals before taking on the work... I'm still waiting for their replies. RE: Supersonic Test Jetgirl8 (Aerospace) 19 Mar 12 15:00 This PDF might be helpful; it was done in 2008 and seems to be a survey of wind tunnels, their capabilities, and contact information in the Western Hemisphere.http://www.loc.gov/rr/frd/pdf-files/Western_Hemisphere_Wind_Tunnels.pdfGood luck.
