Abstract:

Results are given of an experimental study of the structure of a vortex wake behind a thin body of revolution at different angles of attack. Wake measurements were carried out in a closed wind tunnel at a flow velocity corresponding to a Reynolds number of 4,300,000 and angles of attack of 0, 10, 20 and 30 degrees. The total, dynamic and static pressures were measured in various sections behind the body. The dimensionless velocity and coefficients of static and total pressure were calculated from these measurements. Author
