Description: Report presenting some exploratory materials and nose-shape tests in a small supersonic air jet with a stagnation temperature of approximately 4000 degrees Fahrenheit. Materials considered included graphite, copper, carbon steel, and stainless steel, and the nose shapes included 90 degree total-angle cones, hemispherical-face cylinders, and flat-face cylinders. The aerodynamic heat transfer to flat-face cylinders is appreciably less than to hemispherical-face cylinders.
