Abstract:

Base pressure measurements were made on sharp and hemispherically blunted 9 degree cones at Mach numbers from 3.50 to 9.20. The data obtained are compared to experimental data and to data from semiempirical analyses from other sources. An empirical correlation for the base pressure data is presented. The relative contributions of base and form drag to total drag are compared.
