The Oxford T6 Stalker tunnel: performance, upgrades and new modes of operation

Abstract:

The T6 Stalker tunnel is a multi-mode high enthalpy pulse facility for testing of aerothermodynamics for high speed flight. It operates with a free-piston driver and can be coupled to several different components downstream to become a shock tube, reflected shock tunnel or an expansion tube. This allows for a wide range of testing from subscale model testing to exploration of fundamental high-speed flow processes. Its development was initiated in 2014 with its first commissioning beginning in...
