Experimental Aerosciences at Sandia: An Overview with Applications

When:  May 16, 2024 from 17:45 to 19:00 (MT)
Associated with  Albuquerque Section

An overview of the facilities will be given, followed by three application examples. The first shows an approach to hypersonic shock tunnel characterization using Raman spectroscopy and molecular-tagging velocimetry. Second, the optical distortion induced by hypersonic boundary layers is quantified using highspeed imaging techniques and a novel analysis method. Third, the difficult-to-predict flow characteristics of transonic shock-induced separation are measured using a suite of diagnostics to build a validation data set for computational models.
