Abstract : The theoretical investigation includes three dimensional hypersonic flow problems, shock interaction studies, weak interacting hypersonic flow over cones, hypersonic leading edge problems, wake problems, and an analysis of binary boundary layer problems. Additionally, a method is reviewed whereby the equations of a steady, twodimensional compressible, isentropic flow of a perfectly conducting gas with an aligned magnetic field can be reduced to those of the conventional non-magnetic case. The experimental portion of the investigation was conducted in a Mach 14, twenty-inch hypersonic wind tunnel. Topics investigated include the hypersonic wake problem, shock interaction, hypersonic flow over cones at low and high angles of attack, hypersonic inlet problems, hypersonic flow over flat plates with and without a glow discharge, and flow over delta wings at high angles of attack. Brief descriptions of the calibration of the above mentioned tunnel and evaluation of instrumentation used in conjunction with the tunnel are also included. (Author)
