The flow past a blunt cone-cylinder at transonic speeds and at moderate angles of incidence has been studied experimentally by recording (1) the longitudinal and circumferential pressure distribution, (2) the surface oil flow patterns using a suspension of titanium dioxide in oleic acid. The results indicate some interesting three-dimensional flow separation phenomenon at transonic speeds.
