  • Content Description: Report presenting a discussion of the adverse effects of high compression ratio requirements for supersonic wind tunnels as well as the use of second throats for alleviating those effects. The results indicated that an auxiliary air-injector system can reduce starting and running compression ratios as compared to a conventional wind tunnel with a divergent diffuser.
