Abstract:

The amplitudes and widths of the assumed gaussian distributions of electron density in the wakes of hypersonic spheres flown at 14,500 feetsecond in atmospheres of air and nitrogen at various pressures have been derived from phase shift measurements with a dual channel interferometer. The data apply to the near wake extending from just behind the spherical projectile out to several hundreds of body diameters.
