In most past programs, wind tunnel test results have often been lost or inadequately documented for future use. The authors feel that the extensive Space Shuttle wind tunnel test program should be considered as a national resource. It is with that thought in mind that the entire Space Shuttle wind tunnel test data base has been archived in both. Transonic Airfoil Testing AAE 03 May John Tapee Alex Zaubi.

Perhaps the best solution to the problem of low Reynolds number comes by operating a relatively big tunnel (2 × 2 m test section or larger) at a relatively high pressure (up to 5 bar) and at cryogenic temperatures using nitrogen (or nitrogen Cited by: 4.

The by foot Transonic Wind Tunnel (foot TWT) Facility is part of the Unitary Plan Wind Tunnel (UPWT) complex at NASA's Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, California, where generations of commercial and military aircraft and NASA space vehicles, including the space shuttle, have been designed and tested.

High subsonic wind tunnels ( A Trisonic Wind Tunnel (TWT) is a wind tunnel so named because it is capable of testing in three speed regimes – subsonic, transonic, and earliest known trisonic wind tunnel was dated to and was located in El Segundo, California before it closed in Other trisonic wind tunnels currently in operation are those located at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center.

Wind tunnel testing was considered of strategic importance during the Cold War development of supersonic aircraft and missiles. Later, wind tunnel study came into its own: the effects of wind on man-made structures or objects needed to be studied when buildings became tall enough to present large surfaces to the wind, and the resulting forces.

Transonic flow occurs when there is mixed sub- and supersonic local flow in the same flowfield (typically with freestream Mach numbers from M = or to ). Usually the supersonic region of the flow is terminated by a shock wave, allowing the flow to slow down to subsonic speeds.
