IN recent years there have been many papers covering the choice of powerplant for the supersonic transport aeroplane and several relating specifically to the Concorde. The subjects which have been covered include the choice of engine cycle, development history, propulsion controls and other design aspects. In the majority of these papers the environmental conditions which the supersonic engine experiences have been stressed but only brief references have been made to the ways and means whereby these conditions can be simulated on the test bed or in altitude test facilities.
