The Langley Research Center (LaRC or NASA Langley) located in Hampton, Virginia, United States, is the oldest of NASA's field centers. It directly borders Langley Air Force Base and the Back River on the Chesapeake has focused primarily on aeronautical research, but has also tested space hardware at the facility, such as the Apollo Lunar arters: Hampton, Virginia, United States.

Ladson Langley Research Center SUMMARY The Langley 6- by inch transonic tunnel is a two-dimensional facility with slotted top and bottom walls, which .

So are two 8-Foot tunnels. The year after that, the byFoot Full-Scale tunnel on Langley's East Side is scheduled to go. The National Transonic Facility (NTF) at Langley is a high pressure, cryogenic, closed-circuit wind tunnel with a Mach number range from to and a Reynolds number range of 4 x 10 6 to x 10 6 per foot. The test section has 12 slots and 14 reentry flaps in the ceiling and floor. This paper concerns one of the NASA in-house activities, the Langley Laminar Flow Control (LFC) Project, which was carried out in the Langley 8-foot Transonic Pressure Tunnel (8-ft TPT). The idea for such an undertaking came from Dr. Werner Pfenninger in and stemmed, primarily, from a desire to know more about the compatability of a high Cited by: 3. 8-Foot Transonic Pressure Tunnel (TPT): Sample of Schlieren results Left - Mach # = Right - Mach # =

The photograph shows the Energy Efficient Transport (EET) Model in the NASA-Langley Research Center 8-Foot Transonic Pressure Tunnel. The model has been tested. A NASA Langley technical paper identifies the ultimate source of the slotted-wall solution that NACA Langley devised for the transonic tunnel problem in the late s: "The first 30 years of wind tunnel wall-interference research yielded an important fact for modern wind tunnels; that is, theoretically and experimentally, solid-wall.   Several large components of the full scale tunnel and smaller historic artifacts from the full scale and the 8-foot transonic pressure tunnel were salvaged for display at NASA Langley and other. In the past, only a relatively small number of investigations were conducted using hot-wire anemometry in transonic and subsonic slip flows. This was due to the complexity of the applicable equations. Now it appears that the developments in electronics and computational methods have made it practical to reconsider this by:
