Abstract:

Pressure and heat transfer data were obtained for Mach 21 flows over a blunt pyramidal configuration composed of a 70 degree sweepback delta wing surface and two dihedral surfaces. Instrumented trailing edge flaps were mounted in pairs on either the delta wing or dihedral surfaces and an uninstrumented ventral fin was attached during several test runs. The model was pitched at angles of attack between -30 and 45 degrees for free stream Reynolds numbers, based on model length, of approximately 51,000.
