Abstract:

The original objectives of this project were to completely map the reentrant pyramid near wake with pitot pressure and recovery temperature probes in order to study the axial development of the wakes azimuthal asymmetry. Although only a modest amount of data has been collected, compared to our original goal, sufficient information is available to identify most features of the pyramids wake and to make a comparison to the axisymmetric cone wake.
