Drag reduction studies are conducted using a flat disc tipped aerospike for a 120-degree apex angle blunt cone model in high enthalpy flows. Accelerometer based force balance is used for the drag force measurement in the newly established free piston driven shock tunnel, HST3. Drag reduction upto about 58 percent has been achieved for Mach 8 flow of 5 MJ/kg specific enthalpy at zero degree angle of attack.
