New Aerospace Research Data Have Been Reported by Researchers at National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Flow Disturbance Measurements in the National Transonic Facility)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Defense & Aerospace Week -- Current study results on Aerospace Research have been published. According to news reporting out of Hampton, Virginia, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "Recent flow measurements have been acquired in the National Transonic Facility to assess the test-section unsteady flow environment. The primary purpose of the test is to determine the feasibility of the facility to conduct laminar-flow-control testing and boundary-layer transition-sensitive testing at flight-relevant operating conditions throughout the transonic Mach number range."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from National Aeronautics and Space Administration, "The facility can operate in two modes, warm and cryogenic test conditions for testing full and semispan-scaled models. Data were acquired for Mach and unit Reynolds numbers ranging from 0.2

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Based on the current measurements and previous data, an assessment was made that the facility may be a suitable facility for ground-based demonstrations of laminar-flow technologies at flight-relevant conditions in the cryogenic mode."
