Abstract:

The report presents an analysis of the pressure data from a wind tunnel test conducted to gain information about rocket plume effects on missile base pressure and local pressure along flared and boattailed bodies of revolution at transonic speeds. The jet plume was simulated by a cold air jet over a pressure range from 0 to approximately 600 psia.
