Description

The Aerothermodynamic Measurement Laboratory provides technical expertise, skilled craftsmen, analytical tools, and calibration/characterization facilities in support of applied research in aerothermal test measurement techniques. The fundamental services of the ATMLab include specialization in heat transfer and transient temperature measurement for application to space and atmospheric high-speed flight models. Unique and specialized instrumentation is designed, fabricated, calibrated, and installed in supersonic and hypersonic test articles and facilities. A wide range of heat-flux transducer and temperature measurement methodologies have been modeled with state-of-the-art finite element analysis (FEA) tools, and instrumentation subsequently developed to aid in the definition of aerothermal flow characteristics. Examples include heat transfer measurements on wind tunnel models such as the Space Shuttle, HOPE and X-30 and on full-scale afterburning fighter jet engines. Most high-speed flight vehicle programs have required aerothermal capabilities provided by the AEDC test facilities and the technical services of the ATMLab.
