EQUILIBRIUM, ADIABATIC WALL, AND STAGNATION TEMPERATURES AT ALTITUDES UP TO 100,000 FEET AND MACH NUMBERS UP TO 20
JOHNS HOPKINS UNIV LAUREL MD APPLIED PHYSICS LAB
Pagination or Media Count:
In the preliminary design phase of high velocity vehicles, quick, conservative estimates of surface temperatures are always desirable. To fill this need, the equilibrium, adiabatic wall, and stagnation temperatures have been determined for altitudes from sea level to 100,000 feet and for Mach numbers from 2 to 20. Data for both laminar and turbulent flow are presented. For easy reading, the results are presented as temperature versus Mach number plots at altitude intervals of 10,000 feet. The only information necessary to obtain equilibrium temperatures from this report is distance from the leading edge to the point in question, emissivity of the surface, Mach number, and altitude.
