present study is done to evaluate the effect of parameters like trip strip installation, free stream velocity, geometery of model nose (SUBBOF nose and DRDC nose) and putting up model in pitch and yaw angle, on drag coefficient. also the effect of stand geometry of an axially symmetric model in wind tunnel on wake flow structure and drag coefficient in zero and ten degree angles of attack was investigated. choosing best distance behind the model for data acquisition in order to calculate drag coefficient under consideration of turbulence effects in one dimension is the other item to investigate in present study. all experiments have been done in an open circuit wind tunnel at university of Yazd and data acquisitions has been done with a one dimensional hot wire. according to calculations installation of trip strip enhanced drag coefficient in all cases. also drag coefficient decreased with increasing free stream velocity. putting up the model in pitch and yaw angle of attack increased drag coefficient. between two nose shapes that examined, the SUBBOF nose shape choosed as suitable nose. a stand with NACA0012-64 geometry and Rod stand were selected as the most appropriate stands for zero and 10 degree angles of attack.
