Results of supersonic wind tunnel tests are presented which show the effects of varying nozzle geometry, location, and supply pressure on the base pressure of a cylindrical body at zero angle of attack. The purpose of the tests was to investigate the parametric influences in the regions where base pressure is near a minimum, which occurs in the lower range of thrust levels. A bibliography of related experimental results is also included.
