Abstract:

Tests were conducted in the 40-Inch Supersonic and 50-Inch Mach 8 Tunnels of the von Karman Gas Dynamics Facility to determine the separation characteristics of ejected capsules while in the influence of the flow field of the carrier vehicle. High-speed movies were obtained of cylindrical and cone-cylinder flared capsules ejected at Mach numbers 2, 4, 5, and 8 with a constant free-stream Reynolds number of 3.4 x 10 to the 6th power per ft. The capsule orientations along their trajectories are presented to illustrate the results obtained. Author
