Harkins, William D. (1954) Base pressure and static pressure for a cone-cylinder at a nominal mach number of 5.8. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-12152003-095830
An experimental investigation was made in the GALCIT Hypersonic Wind Tunnel Leg No. l to determine the base pressure and static pressure on a cone-cylinder at a nominal Mach number of 5.8 in both one-phase and two-phase flow.
The scope of the investigation was a determination of interference data necessary for proper evaluation of base pressure results, investigation of the effect of Reynolds number on base pressure, and a comparison of experimental and theoretical static pressure distribution on a cone-cylinder.
As has been noted by other investigators, viscous effects in hypersonic flow were quite pronounced and demonstrated the increased non-linearity of the problems in hypersonic flow.
