Density fields around a sphere at Mach numbers 1.30 and 1.62

Paul B. Gooderum, George P. Wood
Aug 1950

Interferograms were taken of the flow around a sphere at Mach number of 1.30 and 1.62. The results of the evaluation of these interferograms are shown as plots of contours of constant density ratio in the flow field around the sphere and as the distribution of flow variables along the axis of symmetry between the shock wave and the sphere.
