Static stability and base pressure tests were conducted, on the AEDC-VKF standard force cone. The tests were performed at nominal Mach numbers of 3.01, 3.25, 3.51, 3.76, 4.02, 4.52, 5.04, 5.58, and 5.95 at free-stream unit Reynolds numbers ranging from 800,000 per foot to 7,000,000 per foot. The angle-of-attack and sideslip angle ranges were -13 to 13 deg. The effects of nose geometry, boundary layer trips, fins, Reynolds number, and model location in the test section were investigated. Model flow-field photographs were obtained on all configurations at selected conditions. Author
