The present LHSR has its origin in the High Enthalpy Aerodynamics Laboratory (HEAL) started in the early 1970's by Prof. N M Reddy, a student of Prof. Glass who was one of the pioneers in shock wave research. Separate Shock Wave Research Laboratory, High Temperature Chemical Kinetics Laboratory and a dedicated Machine Shop were created. All these laboratories were combined and renamed as the Laboratory for Hypersonic and Shock wave Research (LHSR). This laboratory is equipped with a wide range of facilities and has been involved in research work on hypersonic aerodynamics, shock waves and application of shock waves.
Objectives of MOU:
• Exchange of students nominated to carry out studies under professional internship.
