Abstract

A Compressed Air Storage System is an essential13; research tool which finds a variety of applications for13; operating high speed wind tunnels and test rigs required13; for experimental investigations in the fields of high13; aerodynamics and propulsion. In the light of the13; developments taking place in supersonic and hyper-13; aerodynamics, the proper design and layout of such13; em that would meet our research requirements for the13; next fifteen years is a matter requiring careful thought.13; Not only should the system be flexible enough and adaptable for a variety of applications but it should also be13; capable of being integrated easily with larger systems13; that may be needed in future years. A desirable feature for immediate purposes is that the basic system designed to meet the requirements of the trisonic tunnel should also be available for operating a number of other smaller supersonic tunnels in the Wind Tunnel Centre and for pilot experiments in the propulsion laboratory that will be located near the aerodynamics laboratories.
