Description: Report presenting the results of an investigation of water-vapor condensation shocks in the air passing through supersonic tunnels. Criterions for condensation-free flow are established by correlating experimental observations with the Volmer theory of nuclei formation. Results regarding the condensation-free criterions, scale effect, physical appearance of condensation shock, and practical considerations for tunnel design are provided.
