AVIC ARI has successfully extended the Mach number of FL-2 to 3.0
AVIC ARI has successfully extended the Mach number of FL-2 to 3.0 through the efforts of the WT enhancement team. The flow field at Mach 3.0 was verified on 16th January, 2018 which enabling AVIC ARI to offer broad range of Mach number testing to meet the requirements for the development of the novel aircraft.
In recent years, AVIC ARI has carried on a large number of wind tunnel tests among which the supersonic Mach number at 3 or even 4 was highly requested. Therefore, aiming at shortening the queue time as well as improving the testing occupancy of FL-2, AVIC ARI supported a project to extend the Mach number of FL-2 to 3.0. The project was divided into two stages on the basis of the original 0.3-2.0testing capability starting with Mach 3.0 test capability. After the verification, the intermediary Mach number including 2.25,2.5 and 2.75 will be added on.
The completion of supersonic capability at Mach 3.0 in FL-2 provides the high speed aerodynamics service in FL-2 and FL-60 in a more efficient way. AVIC ARI will continue improving our WT fleet to provide better specialist services to worldwide aerospace industry.
