Abstract:

Tests were conducted in the 40-in supersonic tunnel of the von Karman Gas Dynamics Facility to investigate the drag and decelerator models deployed at various positions aft of double-strut mounted forebodies. Data were obtained at Mach numbers from 2 to 5 at dynamic pressures corresponding to pressure altitudes which ranged from 41,000 to 140,000 ft. Selected typical results are presented.
