Development of a supersonic plasma wind tunnel Conference Paper uri icon


  • The study of controlled plasma discharges in supersonic air has become an area of increasing interest. These discharges may be used for flow control, drag reduction, combustion initiation and stabilization, as well as for power extraction and plasma shielding. applications. In order to study the formation of such discharges and their impact on the flow, proper testing facilities are required. This paper details the work done in the design, construction, and testing of a supersonicp lasmaw ind tunnel. 2000 Princeton University.
