A preliminary set of results are presented on the effects of high rate of injection localized at the forward stagnation point of a blunt body under hypersonic conditions. The device is envisaged as a possible mean to deform the effective shape of noses of vehicles reentering from interplanetary missions an attempt is made to establish an analogy with spiked bodies. Pressure distribution and heat transfer data are obtained for a Mach number equal to 8 and Reynolds number 23 and injection rates ranging between C 16. Author
