Abstract

This study is focused on the effect of boattail angle on the pressure distribution and drag force of axisymmetric afterbodies under low-speed conditions. Experiments were conducted on three conical boattails with angles of 10°, 14° and 20°. The diameter-based Reynolds number is approximately 4.3
