John Hopf speaks about a heat transfer simulation model at the von Kàrmàn Gas Dynamics Facility during the Flight Systems Combined Test Force open house Oct. 21. The Flight Systems CTF at AEDC offers aerodynamic ground-test capabilities from very low subsonic speeds through Mach number 10 in various wind tunnels. These tunnels provide essential test and analysis services in support of DOD, national, U.S. industry and international space programs.
