The report presents rescent observations and data on the shock interaction problem in the aerodynamic heating of military aerospace vehicles. Information on both two and three dimensional interactions are presented, and the literature from July 1967 to August 1971 is reviewed. Some features of the interaction observed by various authors have been investigated in greater depth in order to clarify the features of the interaction process. Conclusions from these data relative to current hypersonic vehicle design studies of the space shuttle are drawn. Author
