The report presents heat-transfer-rate measurements on sharp and blunt 10-deg half-angle cones at angles of attack between -9 and 10 deg in a low-density, hypersonic wind tunnel. Circumferential and longitudinal distributions are presented for cold wall conditions for a range at Mach and Reynolds numbers. The effect of source-like flows was studied by utilizing both conical and contoured expansion nozzles with the same free-stream similarity parameters and model wall temperatures. Comparisons are made with previously published experimental and theoretical results.
