Abstract : Tests were conducted at Mach numbers 5, 6, and 8 to obtain force and pressure distribution data for two elliptic ogives. The results presented show the effect of Mach number and Reynolds number variation on aerodynamic forces for angles of attack from -6 to +6 deg and on pressure distributions for angles of attack from -4 to +4 deg. Shadowgraphs obtained at various angles of attack show shock wave and boundary layer phenomena. (Author)
