Abstract : Values of Mach number, static pressure, static temperature, velocity and density in the turbulent wake of a 9 degree cone at Mach 5 were obtained in an experimental investigation. The experimental results were used to calculate streamlines in the wake and values of the turbulent eddy viscosity. A map of the flow field around the 9 degree cone is presented. The influence of the wake shock wave on the development of the turbulent wake close to the body is discussed. Experimental values of the eddy viscosity are compared with several empirical eddy viscosity models from the literature. (Author)
