NOSE PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION AND SEPARATION ON AN INCLINED AIXSYMMETRIC BODY

When a body of revolution is inclined to a small angle of attack, a large region of separated flow occurs on the leeward side of the body. The effect of this viscous phenomenon on the surface pressure distribution of a hemispherical nose with a cylindrical afterbody is examined.
