High-enthalpy wind tunnels are used for the measurement of the aerodynamical behaviour of spaceships during the re-entry in the atmosphere. For the wind tunnel experiment, a piston builds up a high pressure that is supposed to burst a metallic plate with a predetermined breaking point. Due to the shape of the wind tunnel, the shockwave that is created when the plate bursts is transformed into a uniform stream. When this shockwave reaches the model of the spaceship, it is possible to run a laser measurement for the tenth part of a second in order to study the aerodynamics.

|Triden007||Good, you know, race cars use this kind of things, to test the spoilers, the design, to have less resistance to the wind, to cut the wind and run like a drag.||2009-11-17|
