Abstract

A supersonic wind tunnel was to be designed using the existing compressed air tank at the Mechanical Engineering building at the University of Arkansas. A throat area of 0.000375 m2 was used in the design process. The properties of the air were calculated using various Mach numbers. These results are used to determine if a wind tunnel of Mach numbers between one and five can be built at the University of Arkansas and can run for a sufficient amount of time. Also, the dimensions of the supersonic wind tunnel were calculated for these various Mach numbers.
