A versatile test facility has been developed by the National Aeronautical Laboratory, Bangalore, India, which has the capability of testing turbomachinery blade cascades at transonic /supersonic inlet Mach numbers. The tunnel has a large test section and is equipped with13; suitable instrumentation, control, and safety systems. A description of this facility is presented, along with details of the instrumentation and control systems, and typical tunnel characteristics and calibration results are also given. It is concluded that the versatility of the tunnel makes it well equipped to take up a wide range of research and developmental activities connected with transonic flows inside turbomachine blade passages.
