Hypersonics: Test and Evaluation (1-Day Course) 8 January 2022 0800 - 1700 Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego, CA
Instructed by Mr. Daniel Marren, recently retired Director of the White Oak Site of AEDC Test Division at the Arnold Engineering Development Complex
This unique Hypersonics Test and Evaluation short course is an offering that is meant to introduce students to high speed and hypersonic test. The course will introduce the concept of hypersonic flight and describe the critical physics that is encountered at this unique and formidable speed regime. It will briefly discuss the system benefits and uses for this flight regime and put in perspective, why system performance and evaluation through test for this important speed regime can create difficulties for the tester, test facility developer and project manager. Principals of test design for this unique flight regime will be discussed as well as descriptions and examples of the typical test capability types along with examples of each in the current ground test infrastructure.
- Be able to describe the fundamentals of hypersonic flight.
- Demonstrate familiarity with the various benefits of speed.
- Understand the history of hypersonic test.
- Differentiate between the disciplines and test capabilities used to evaluate high speed systems.
- Gain a better understanding of the salient physics challenges for providing a relevant environment.
- Know the Benefits and Shortfalls of test and test techniques to choose evaluation method wisely.
- Recognize and plan for evaluation of important concepts through test
