Abstract : A compilation and evaluation of theoretical and experimental aerodynamic data are presented for conical shapes at Mach numbers from 0 to 25. Emphasis is placed on slender cones such as might be used for ballistic missile reentry. Plots for obtaining estimates of static and dynamic aerodynamic characteristics are included.
