Abstract:
A compilation has been made of all calibration data obtained since 1958 in the von Karman Gas Dynamics Facility's 12-Inch Supersonic Tunnel (D). Test section flow characteristics are pre sented for the nominal Mach number range from 1.5 to 5 over the available Reynolds number range. Along the axis of the test section for all con tours the maximum variation in Mach number is within =0.01, and the average flow angles in pitch and yaw are less than 0.2 deg. Somewhat larger variations in Mach number and flow angu larity are found off-axis. At the higher Mach numbers, significant changes in the average test section Mach number with decreasing Reynolds number are accompanied by corresponding changes in the tunnel boundary layer.
