The application of statistical engineering as described here is applied to fundamental research I support of hypersonic air breathing propulsion. An aerospace experiment that took place in a wind tunnel is the application of interest. One goal of the project was to accurately model the relationship between specific input and output parameters in the hypersonic combustion process within a controlled environment. Response surface methodology (RSM) was applied in a nontraditional manner to develop the response surface as the final deliverable rather than a tool to optimize a product or process.
