Abstract/Summary We demonstrate an end-to-end computational model of the HEG shock tunnel as a way to extract more precise test flow conditions and as a way of getting predictions of new operating conditions. For a selection of established operating conditions, the L1d program was used to simulate the one-dimensional gas-dynamic processes within the whole of the facility. The program reproduces the compression tube performance reliably and, with the inclusion of a loss factor near the upstream-end of the compression tube, it provides a good estimate of the equilibrium pressure in the shock-reflection region over the set of six standard operating conditions for HEG.
