Abstract:

Heat transfer and pressure measurements have been measured on a convex conic configuration with a spherical nosetip in the von Karman Institute Longshot free pison tunnel at M15 and 20. The test flow parameters achieved closely simulated reentry aerodynamic conditions. Information derived from the measurements and also from schlieren photographs enabled statements to be made on the effect of Mach number, Re number, surface roughness and flow incidence on the flow over the model.
