This paper deals with the experimental investigation on the MHD (magneto-hydro-dynamic or magneto-fluid-dynamic) interaction around a test body immersed into a hypersonic unseeded air flow. The experiments have been carried out in the CIRA plasma wind tunnel SCIROCCO. Two test conditions have been utilized for the experiments with a total pressure of 2.5 and 2.3 bar respectively, a total specific enthalpy of 16 and 12.1 MJ/kg respectively. The air flow was accelerated in the nozzle up to Mach 10. The magnetic induction field is generated by an electromagnet enclosed in the test body and reaches a 0.8 T maximum value in the interaction region.
