Abstract : Numerical calculations of the chemically reacting laminar air boundary layer equations are presented at several points along cone-shaped reentry bodies at several flight conditions and different wall temperatures. These results use a seven component, ten reaction model of air (N, O, N2, O2, NO, NO+, e-). Thermodynamic and transport properties are completely general and use the latest available information. The solutions are based on the assumption of local similarity. The resulting electron densities are noted. (Author)
