Abstract : Additional wind tunnel tests at a Mach number of 8, which supplement Mach 2, 4 and 5 tests reported in Volume II on a data capsule shape in an interference flow field of a carrier vehicle were conducted. The data obtained were analyzed and a preliminary evaluation was made as to the agreement with methods of prediction for both the Mach 8 tests and previous reported tests. It is shown that where the interference flow field is reasonably predicted, estimated values of a capsule's derivatives obtained with relatively simple calculation techniques agree reasonably well with the data.
