An experimental investigation has been carried out on an aerofoil-like body having a thick square-cut trailing edge. Measurements of base pressure have been made for a range of mainstream Mach numbers from 0.6 to 1.3. The results also include measurements of vortex shedding frequency and schlieren photographs. Bleed air was discharged through the blunt base using three different configurations: (i) A wide two-dimensional slot; (ii) A narrow two-dimensional slot; (iii) A series of accurately bored discrete holes, equal in total area to the narrow slot. As the rate of discharge of bleed air was increased from zero the base pressure was found to rise to a maximum value before falling again at higher rates of discharge. At zero incidence the three configurations gave similar results but when incidence was applied the results were markedly different for the wide and narrow slots.
