A comprehensive review of high-speed flow separation and a review of available information pertaining to the effectiveness of aerodynamic controls for hypersonic vehicles are presented. Emphasis is on the problems associated with applying the existing information, which relates primarily to the low- supersonic speed range, to hypersonic flow situations. Sufficient detail is presented to allow this report to serve as a self-contained, introductory work on separation phenomena; available sources of specific types of control data are tabulated for ready access.
