Abstract:

A survey and analysis was made of the aerothermodynamic problem areas in the flight spectrum of hypersonic glide and re-entry vehicles. This flight spectrum was defined by speeds between 5000 ftsec and orbital speed and by altitudes between 100,000 and 400,000 feet. Major problemAREAS OF FLIGHT WITHIN THIS SPECTRUM WERE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE THE COVERAGE OF EXISTING DATA AND TO RECOMMEND AREAS WHERE FURTHER RESEARCH IS NEEDED. Author
