China is building the world's fastest wind tunnel for | Daily Mail Online
Description:The craft must be covered by special materials with state-of-the-art cooling systems inside its frame to dissipate the heat. The vehicle will be capable of speeds of up to Mach 10, or 10 times the speed of sound To generate a the high-speed air flow needed to test hypersonic craft in the new tunnel, researchers will detonate tubes of explosive gases. The new tunnel will be 'one of the most powerful and advanced ground test facilities for hypersonic vehicles in the world', Professor Wu said. Without this heat shield the vehicle would warp and could veer off course or disintegrate on a long-distance flight. The blasts will generate shock waves that give off one gigawatt of wind power within a split second, according to Dr Wei.
