A method for design of hypersonic nozzles for wind tunnels is developed and implemented on the basis of solving direct problems with various models of the medium and numerical methods of integration of gas-flow equations. Multimodal nozzles for operation in Mach number ranges Mout=8-14 and Mout=14-20 satisfying specified requirements are designed.
