An investigation has been conducted to determine experimentally the effects of compressibility on the flow past a bump and to compare the experimentally determined results with theory. Pressure measurements and Schlieren photographs were made of the flow past two bumps having thickness-chord ratios of 0.10 and 0.30 at Mach numbers between 0.20 and 0.84.
