Abstract : An experimental study of the turbulent wake behind a 9 degree adiabatic cone at Mach 5 was carried out. Cone models with base diameters of 2 inches and 4 inches were mounted in the wind tunnel test section with fine wires. Pitot pressure, pressure on a small cone probe and total temperature were measured with probes mounted on a vertical traversing mechanism. The measured pressures and temperatures were used to calculate the Mach number, static pressure, static temperature, velocity and density in the wake. (Author)
