Abstract:

A series of semi-ballistic type bodies consisting of three half sphere-cones of .3 bluntness ratio with half cone angles of 8.6, 13 and 18 degrees was tested in the shock tunnel at M 17.5 and 12.4. In addition a representative winged glide configuration consisting of a sharp edged, 60 degree swept delta wing with cone-segment body was tested with and without body at M 12.4. The angle of attack range for the half sphere-cone tests was 65 degrees for the delta wing it was 20 degrees. Author
