Pressure distributions on some simple sharp-nosed aerodynamic shapes have been obtained at Mach numbers from 16 to 18 in helium flow. The results obtained for the flat plate differ from the prediction of Lees for the strong interaction region by an amount which may be accounted for by finite thickness of the leading edge.
