Abstract

This paper gives an overview of the experimental work on the MHD-hypersonic flow interaction, 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 and the Italian Space Agency. The aim of the experiment was to produce a database to be used for the validation of numerical codes for the analysis and the simulation of the agnetofluid-dynamic interaction in hypersonic flows. In order to do this a grat attention has been dedicated to the diagnostics and mainly to those which can deliver experimental data to be compared with numerical results. In the experiments reported sharp and blunt bodies have been investigated at Mach 6 and Mach 15. The experiments have shown large effect of the MHD interaction at each of the experimental conditions investigated.
