Orientation of orifices on bodies of revolution for determination of stream static pressure at supersonic speeds

Morton Cooper, Clyde V. Hamilton
Jan 1952

Experimental data obtained in the Langley 4- by 4-foot supersonic tunnel for a parabolic body of revolution of large fineness ratio at a Mach number of 1.59 and Reynolds number of 3.6 X 10(exp 6) have been analyzed to locate positions at which static-pressure orifices will indicate a constant static pressure (steam static or otherwise) independent of the pitch-yaw attitude of the body.
