Abstract:

The purpose of this program is to characterize the aerodynamic properties of the boundary layers and wakes of slender hypersonic vehicles by means of ballistics range data and their attendant analysis. The Ballistics Range Program reported in this document is a portion of the ABRES program that is being provided by the U. S. Naval Ordnance Laboratory, White Oak, Maryland. The NOL investigations have the following general objectives 1 measurement of aerodynamic properties that characterize the boundary layers and wakes of slender vehicles 2 evaluation of the experimental data to compare with existing theories 3 modification of current theory as required in the interpretation of the experiments.
