Centre for Hypersonics

The Centre for Hypersonics conducts research into all aspects of hypersonic flight, including test facilities, air-breathing engines, rocket flight testing, aerothermodynamics, computational fluid dynamics and optical diagnostics.

Hypersonic aerodynamics has been a major research activity at The University of Queensland for over 20 years. The researchers in the centre have been involved in collaborative research programs with about 20 universities and research organisations around the world. Areas of expertise within the centre are:

  • Development of hypervelocity test facilities
  • SCRAMjet propulsion (experiment, analysis and design)
  • Rocket flight testing Aerothermodynamic experimentation and analysis
  • Advanced instrumentation for aerodynamic measurements
  • Computational fluid dynamic analysis of hypervelocity flows
  • Optical diagnostics for hypervelocity superorbital flows
