Measurements in the turbulent boundary layer of unyawed cones for Mach numbers from 1 to 6 are presented. Specifically, the first measurements of total temperature profiles, directly determined skin friction, and local heat flux in the turbulent boundary layer of cone models are given. In addition, these experimental data are shown to justify the calculation of turbulent friction and heat transfer on unyawed cones by means of an incompressible plate friction law and simple auxiliary relations.
