Hypersonics and Hypervelocity Research

UDRI Hypersonic Wind Tunnel Model

Designing, Analyzing, Developing, and Testing for Efficiency and Safety at Hypersonic Speeds

UDRI's hypersonic and hypervelocity research supports our customers' efforts to better understand and mitigate the thermal and aerodynamic stresses involved in hypersonic flight (over five times the speed of sound). We work to make hypersonic flight a safer and more efficient reality.

Hypersonic Flow

UDRI performs Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling of hypersonic flows to better guide the design process and limit cases that may not be safe or cost effective.
