Abstract : FLOW SEPARATION CAN SUBSTANTIALLY ALTER THE ANTICIPATED PRESSURE AND HEATING LOADS ON HIGH SPEED AIRCRAFT SURFACES AND CAN COMPROMISE THE DESIGN OF HIGH SPEED VEHICLES. REPORT HAS 3 MAJOR PORTIONS: (1) INVERSE CHRONOLOGICAL LISTING OF REPORTS OF HIGH SPEED SEPARATED FLOW INVESTIGATIONS; (2) A DESCRIPTIVE TABLE AND DISCUSSION OF THE INVESTIGATIONS OF VARIOUS ASPECTS OF HIGH SPEED FLOW PHENOMENA; AND (3) A REFERENCE LIST EMPHASIZING THE MORE RECENT INVESTIGATIONS (ED. NOTE: REPORT WAS PUBLISHED IN 1983). ALSO INCLUDED IN REPORT IS A CROSS REFERENCE LIST OF FIRST AUTHORS AND DATES OF REPORT.
