Measurements of the mean wake flow behind circular cylinders at Mach 6, described in Ref. 1, showed that in a certain Reynolds number range (Re_d ≃ 300-4000) the inner wake stemming from the body boundary layers is laminar and loses its identity within 60 diam, and the outer wake, stemming from the bow shock, is also laminar within a certain downstream distance, and may be calculated from a laminar linear theory, but does not become similar (Gaussian) within 2400 diam. Experimental study of the stability of these wakes is presented in Ref. 2.
