Hypersonics: Test & Evaluation

When:  Mar 18, 2021 from 12:01 AM to 11:59 PM (ET)
Associated with  HyTASP: Public Forum
This unique Hypersonics Test and Evaluation short course is an 8-hour offering that is meant to introduce students to high speed and hypersonic test. The course will introduce the concept of hypersonic flight and describe the critical physics that is encountered at this unique and formidable speed regime. It will briefly discuss the system benefits and uses for this flight regime and put in perspective, why system performance and evaluation through test for this important speed regime can create difficulties for the tester, test facility developer and project manager. Principals of test design for this unique flight regime will be discussed as well as descriptions and examples of the typical test capability types along with examples of each in the current ground test infrastructure.
