RÉSUMÉ

Initial development of an experimental program on electromagnetic control of shockwave was presented. This experiment was aimed to investigate the validity of the potential MHD flow control for hypersonic flight vehicle. Experimental arc heater facility modification, test model design and analysis, cradle design and preliminary experimental results were reported. Shockwave locations for high Mach number ionized flows over a spherical nose-cone with cylindrical body and with an applied magnetic field was reported. Results provide excellent platform to simulate electromagnetic shockwave control for the hypersonic flight by introducing ionization seed into the airflow and generates artificial re-entry conditions at reduced Mach number.
