Abstract:

This is a description of the relationships between the flow fields and the static and dynamic stability of blunted-cone-cylinder-flare type re- entry bodies at Mach numbers from 0.7 to 5.0 Effects of variations in some of the shape parameters on the dynamic stability are presented. It is shown that certain combinations of cone and flare angles result in instability in the transonic range. Also, comparison is made between free and forced oscillation data.
