Abstract : Theoretical laminar heat transfer rates to a sphere-cone model at angles of yaw up to 18 degrees are compared with wind tunnel data measured at Mach numbers of 3.2 and 4.8. Two methods of heat transfer prediction have been chosen--the methods of Beckwith and VaglioLaurin. These require that the inviscid streamline pattern on the surface of the yawed spherecone model be known. These steamlines have been calculated from measured surface pressure distributions. The theory of Beckwith agrees reasonably well with the experimental data.
