Abstract:

Wind tunnel tests were conducted on a data capsule shape in the interference field of a carrier vehicle model at Mach numbers of 4.0 and 5.0 with limited data at Mach 2. The data obtained were analyzed and a preliminary evaluation made as to the agreement with methods of prediction. It is shown that in areas where the flow field is known, estimated values of the derivatives obtained with relatively simple calculation techniques agree reasonably well with the data. A discussion of the direct application of these data to capsule separation analyses is presented. Author
