Description: Report presenting a study of the shape, growth, and formation rate of turbulent bursts in supersonic boundary layers using spark shadowgraphs of small gun-launched models in free flight through still air. The model shapes include cones, ogive-cylinders, and hollow cylinders aligned with the stream. Results regarding the burst thickness profiles, burst plan form and transverse growth, three-dimensional burst shape, burst upstream-edge velocity, burst longitudinal growth rate, burst downstream-edge velocity, burst formation rate, and observations from the shadowgraphs are provided.
