The Air Force Flight Dynamics Laboratory 50-Megawatt Electrogasdynamics Test Facility is a continuous flow, electric arc heated, hypersonic, wind tunnel for re-entry heat transfer and aerodynamic testing in air. A brief description of arc wind tunnel work at the Laboratory is presented. Arc heater test data up to 5 megawatts of power are presented and problems associated with highpressure operation of these high-voltage heaters are discussed. The 50-Megawatt Arc Heater design is discussed along with the expected performance of the heater and facility. (Author).
