Abstract:

The flows behind slender bodies moving at hyper sonic speeds were studied. One region where both theoretical and experimental difficulties are encountered is immediately downstream of the body base-the part of the flow referred to as the near wake. Density measurements were made behind a 34 power law body at Mach 13 and 18. The density measurements were used together with calculated pressures to estimat e enthalpies for the near wakes generated in the experiments. The tests were conducted in nitrogen, and at relatively low stagnation enthalpies. Author
