The heat transfer on a 15 degree half-angle blunted cone at angle of attack and Mach number 8 was investigated experimentally. The results were found to agree well with similar data. Heat transfer results are presented for points along the most windward ray, the most leeward ray, and the lateral ray of the cone for several angles of attack. Several theories for predicting the heat transfer along the most windward ray of the cone are evaluated and compared with the experimental data. Theoretical methods and approximations for the axial heat transfer distribution were applied to evaluate an empirical relation for the peripheral heat transfer distribution. These results were then compared with the experimentally determined results and it was found that on the conical portion of the body reasonable engineering agreement with experiment has been obtained.
