Abstract : Correlations of measured normal-force and pitching-moment coefficients from blunt, slender cones have been obtained. These correlations are based on simple Newtonian theory to illustrate the parametric relationships. The correlated data include measurements from 10 blunt cones tested in the VKF (Mach 8 to Mach 20) and measurements from three sharp cones tested at NASA Langley (Mach 9.6). The Mach number 'independence' of these essentially inviscid perfect gas hypersonic static stability data is clearly evident. (Author)
