Pagination or Media Count:
A computational procedure giving equilibrium radiative heat transfer rates to the surface of a shock engulfed vehicle is presented. The local transfer rates are obtained in terms of the local temperature and density at the outer edge of the boundary layer and an effective thermal layer. The computed radiative transfer rates around a typical entry vehicle are presented. A computational procedure for the non-equilibrium radiation is presented in Part II. Author
