TitleBrad Wheaton and Peter Gilbert in laboratory
DescriptionPurdue Colleges and Departments. Brad Wheaton, from left, and Peter Gilbert, graduate students in aeronautics and astronautics at Purdue, peer through a section of a special type of wind tunnel capable of running quietly at hypersonic speeds. Experiments using the wind tunnel are enabling engineers to study how air turns from ""laminar, "" or smooth, to turbulent, and findings will help researchers determine how to control deadly friction and heating in the design of future spacecraft, advanced missiles and ""hypersonic"" aircraft powered by engines called scramjets.
