Formatted Abstract/Summary
Binary scaling is a similitude law that facilitates the study of hypersonic flows around blunt bodies. It conserves the Reynolds number and the binary (two-body) reaction rates, which are mainly present in the nonequilibrium layer, and scales properly the convective heat transfer. It requires duplication of the product of density and a length scale of the flow, rL, as well as the free-stream enthalpy, Htot¥ . Its use for ground-to-flight extrapolation depends on the fractional extent of regions of the flow where higher order reactions become important.

This paper presents the design of flow conditions relevant to the study of binary scaling for the X2 super-orbital expansion tube. Flows conditions with similar free-stream enthalpy but distinct free-stream densities were obtained. With the help of numerical simulation, it was confirmed that those conditions were suitable to isolate the effect of binary scaling from the uncertainties and scattering of free-stream conditions.
