Abstract:

An experimental and theoretical program connected with fluid mechanical and dynamical problems emanating from hypersonic flight is reported. Major emphasis was on the viscous free mixing of homogeneous streams, and the boundary layer flows including effects of deparation, mass injection or suction, unsteady flows, surface discontinuities, and vorticity. Reacting flows, space mechanics, and magnetohydrodynamic effects were also considered. The research is summarized and a bibliography of 33 reports and published papers resulting from this work is presented. Author
