Supersonic Test

Supersonic Test

Supersonic Test

Does anyone know of a lab facility that can do supersonic test for a reasonable fee?  Your help would be appreciated.


RE: Supersonic Test

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

Local to where? Cornell Aeronautical Lab (CALSPAN) is in Buffalo.

RE: Supersonic Test

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

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, that was the most complete list of all test facilities, thanks.
