Abstract : Basic research programs are reported with fundamental applications to supersonic flight. The experimental studies made use of the unique capabilities of the high Reynolds number Mach 3 facility. The experimental programs concentrated on phenomena associated with incipient separation and separation of turbulent boundary layers over a large Reynolds number range. The reattachment phenomena of a shear layer was also studied in great depth.
