Abstract : Here, we present the Final Technical Report on AASERT Grant No. F49620-93-1-0476 Studies of Hypersonic Vehicle Flowfields, in support of AFOSR Grant F49620-93-0064 'Studies Of Hypersonic Boundary Layer Behavior'. The parent grant covered three interrelated research efforts: a study of the structure of hypersonic turbulent boundary layers and shock wave boundary layer interactions, a study of boundary layer transition at supersonic and hypersonic speeds, and the development and application of new optical techniques including filtered Rayleigh scattering and RELIEF to obtain multi-dimensional velocity and density data in the supersonic and hypersonic regimes.
