Accurate prediction of the state of boundary layers and regions of separated flows is of fundamental importance in the design of hypersonic vehicles. The ability to predict boundary layer characteristics and how these affect surface shear stress and its influence on the surface skin friction is directly related to flight performance.  This STTR is concerned with developing a system for measuring surface shear stress in Hypersonic flow facilities using Liquid Crystals .
