Abstract : Pressure distribution, force and heat transfer measurements on different lifting reentry vehicles (blunted half-elliptical cone, delta wing, circular cone) are reported from measurements in the hypersonic low density wind tunnel of the Aerodynamische Versuchsanstalt Gottingen. The experimental results are compared with calculations obtained by different methods.
