Description: An investigation has been made in the Langley 4- by 4-foot supersonic pressure tunnel to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of a 1/40-sca!e pod-separation model of the Convair B-58 airplane at Mach numbers of 1.41, 1.61, and 2.01. The complete return component and the complete pod with its canard controls were tested, both alone and in the presence of each other, at Mach numbers of 1.61 and 2.01. The complete pod and various combinations of its components were tested alone at Mach numbers of 1.41, 1.61, and 2.01 and also in the presence of the return component at Mach numbers of 1.61 and 2.01. The pod was moved in a systematic series of longitudinal and vertical positions to cover the interference fields. The tests were made at zero sideslip only, for pod angles of attack from -10 deg to 10 deg and return-component angles of attack from -4 deg to 6 deg. The present data report gives the results of the investigation in tabular form.
