Abstract : Pressure data were obtained for Mach five flows over winged reentry configurations composed of cylindrical cabins mounted on a 60 degree sweepback delta wing with a cylindrical leading edge, clipped tips, and trailing edge flaps. The model was tested with spherical and conical fronts on the cabin, with and without tip fins, and with and without a trailing edge spoiler. Flap deflections were varied from -40 to +40 degrees and the model was pitched at angles of attack from -30 to +45 degrees for a free stream Reynolds number, based on model length of 3,575,000.
