Abstract:

This study was performed to obtain additional knowledge of the physical characteristics and occurrences within a tripped boundary layer as well as determining suitable techniques for the measurement of these characteristics. A sharp, 7-deg half-angle cone model was tested in Mach 8 flow conditions at free-stream unit Reynolds numbers of 1.3- and 2.6-million per foot at zero angle of attack. Boundary layer surveys pitot and total temperature, coax heat-gage, and model pressure data were acquired for comparison of a variety of boundary layer trip geometries.
