Abstract : An experimental study was made of the interaction of an oblique shock with the bow shock of blunt leading edge. The interactions were classified according to the interference patterns described by Edney. Peak heating rates 5.5 times those of the blunt leading edge alone were studied. All interactions appeared to be unsteady except when the slipstream of the interaction passed above the blunt leading edge. (Author)
