Measuring the coefficient of aerodynamic drag for a sphere subject to nonisothermal streamlining

  • 39 Accesses

Abstract

We present the results from an experimental measurement of the coefficient of aerodynamic drag on spherical particles in an argon plasma at temperatures as high as 10,000 K, and for Mach numbers of M ∼ 0.05 and Reynolds numbers of Re ∼ 0.4–10.
