Abstract:

The purpose of this Note is to document on the velocity profiles measured with the sequential spark technique during the program of study of cone wakes. The use of these profiles has been limited to the determination of characteristics of wake axis and wake front velocities and to the visualization of the skewness of the transverse profile of axial velocity. The results containadditional information on the wake structure which cannot be extracted presently because of lack of statistical data but which could be of interest to specialists in the field.
