Abstract
Describes an experimental study of the wakes produced by hypersonic cones flying at a velocity of 15,000 ft/s in Range 3 at the Defence Research Establishment Valcartier (DREV). Three basic cone shapes have been flown: 0.7 in. base diameter, 20o included angle cones with sharp and blunted noses, and a 1.0 in. base diameter, 44o included angle sharp nose cone. Because of the complexity of the flow field generated by these cones usually flying at some angle of attack, the experimental study was limited to one set of ambient conditions, namely, a cone velocity of 15,000 ft/s and an ambient pressure of 100 Torr of air.
