Abstract : Pressure and heat transfer data were obtained for hypersonic flows over 40-degree expansion corners and ahead of ramps. Full and partial span ramps, having wedge angles up to 90 degrees, were tested at two locations on a sharp leading edge flat plate, with and without end plates. Pressure data were obtained for M = 5 for model length Reynolds numbers between 1.1 and 6.6 million. Both pressure and heat transfer data were obtained for M = 8 for Reynolds numbers between 1.1 and 3.3 million. (Author)
