Description The numerical analysis represents a powerful instrument to support experimentation, both in the preliminary stage andin the post-processing. In this last case, it can be useful to conrm the experimental results and to rebuild the physicalphenomena as well. The subject of this paper is the numerical rebuilding process, by means of the FLUENT code,of the thermo- uid dynamic conditions achieved in the GHIBLI Plasma Wind Tunnel during a cold ow experimentalcampaign. Such a rebuilding process has produced results which agree well with the experimental ones, both measuredor calculated by means of the isentropic equations. The rebuilding conrms the achievement of the hypersonic conditionsin the Test Chamber of the facility, operating with air ow at low enthalpy.
