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.

jokin cool thing! 2010-02-12
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
