Abstract

The MHD interaction in a hypersonic argon flow was experimentally investigated around a conical test body. The aim of the experiment was to produce a database to be used for the validation of numerical codes for the analysis and simulation of the magnetofluiddynamics in hypersonic flows. This paper summarize the work carried out in the High-Enthalpy Arc-heated hypersonic wind Tunnel of Alta, Pisa, Italy, in cooperation with The Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Bologna, under the support of The European Space Agency. In the experiments reported, the MHD interaction has been investigated in a Mach 6 ionized argon flow. The experiments has shown a large effect of the MHD interaction on the values of the measured quantities. The experimental results has been numerically investigated. A discussion of the results is presented here.
