    Wind Tunnel Techniques from Hyposonic to Hypersonic Flows

    From the days of Wilbur and Orville Wright, wind tunnels played a major role in aircraft development. In addition, wind tunnels are also used in many non-aeronautical applications such as: agriculture, automobile and marine vehicle aerodynamics, building aerodynamics, environmental aerodynamics, icing research, ornithology, sport aerodynamics etc. Although CFD is advancing at a rapid rate, CFD is not able to predict flows completely. However, CFD is being used extensively in the design of wind tunnels and wind tunnels are being utilized in validating CFD results. Thus, CFD and wind tunnels are interdependent. During the last few decades enormous advances are made in wind tunnels and wind tunnel measurement techniques. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of wind tunnel techniques from hyposonic to hypersonic flows.

    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore wind tunnel techniques from hyposonic to hypersonic flows. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Advances in wind tunnel design and construction
    • Advances in the utilization of wind tunnels for aeronautical and non-aeronautical applications
    • Advances in wind tunnel measurements
    • Advances in model fabrication
    • Use of CFD for improved wind tunnel design
    • Validation of CFD results with wind tunnel measurements

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.

    Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Wind Tunnel Techniques from Hyposonic to Hypersonic Flows” should be selected during your submission.
