Properties of the nonequilibrium hypersonic turbulent wake have been calculated from an integral solution for the coupled diffusion of mass and energy. Emphasis is placed on a comparison of a slender body calculation from the present simple method with results obtained for the same case by more advanced mathematical techniques such as finite difference methods new blunt body results in which the reacting inviscid flow is entrained by the turbulent inner wake the effect of contaminants on both slender and blunt body wakes and a comparison of the present calculations with ballistic range measurements for wake velocity and electron density.
