Abstract:

The flow field was surveyed at one station XD 6.5 on an ogive- cylinder having a tangent ogive nose with a fineness ratio of 4. The surveys were performed with pitot tubes and cone pressure probes at angles of attack of 0, 5, 10 and 15 degrees for Mach numbers 3.52 and 4.07. Surface static pressures were also measured. The results of the tests are presented in tabular and plotted form. Comparisons are made with inviscid flow fields calculations and with experimental results from other investigations.
