Abstract : Results are presented from wind-tunnel tests performed in a hypersonic tunnel at M = 4.96, 5.01 and 7.70. During these tests normal-force, pitching-moment and roll-damping coefficients were obtained on a 7.25-degree, 0.075 bluntness cone model, for a pd/2V (average roll parameter) value of 0.02 to show the effect of spin, angle of attack, and center-of-gravity offset.
