Abstract : Pressure data were obtained for Mach 5 flows over a blunt pyramidal configuration composed of a 70-degree sweepback delta wing surface and two dihedral surfaces. Trailing edge flap deflections were varied up to 40 degrees on all surfaces and the model was tested with and without canards and ventral fins. The model was pitched at angles of attack from -30 degrees to +45 degrees and at sideslip angles up to 15 degrees for a Reynolds number, based on model length, of 4.6 million. (Author)
