Abstract:

The static pressure distribution on sharp and blunt 10-deg half-angle cones was measured under rarefied conditions in both a uniform and a source flow field. Angle of attack of the cones was varied up to 10 deg. Pressure distributions are presented for cold-wall conditions at 18.0 or Mach number or 20.3 and 407 Reynolds numberin. or 1272. The source flow results are corrected according to the Newtonian pressure distribution, and the results agree with the uniform flow measurements for the longitudinal distribution at zero angle of attack. Comparisons are made with previous experimental and theoretical results.
