A new wind tunnel facility located at the University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba has been constructed for supersonic and hypersonic experiments. The facility differs from other hypersonic test facilities in Australia in that it produces cold flows for relatively long test times. For hypersonic experiments, the Ludwieg tube would normally be used with free piston compression heating. However, the facility can also be configured for an atmospheric pressure, blow-down mode of operation suitable for some supersonic flow experiments. Examples of experiments in flows produced using the Mach 2, Mach 4.5, and Mach 6 contoured nozzles are presented.
