    Abstract

    A study has been conducted to assess the influence of body geometry and orientation on the aerodynamic characteristics of strake-slender body combinations at hypersonic speeds. The addition of strakes produces a significant increase in the lift and drag coefficients. Adding strakes produces stronger favorable interference with the power-law body than the other two configurations. Increasing the body exponent results in increases in the lift-curve slope and the zero-lift drag coefficient.
