Experimental facilities of the Institute

The Institute has a complex of wind tunnels and gasdynamic facilities which covers the range of the Mach numbers from 0.01 to 25 and Reynolds numbers from 10^4 to 5*10^7. A hypersonic wind tunnel of adiabatic compression with pressure multiplicators is under construction,

The basic parameters of the facilities are presented in the table and in the graph
