Abstract:

After a discussion of the modes of heat transfer to a reentering space vehicle, the present state of knowledge concerning convective heat transfer under hypersonic conditions is reviewed. The two-dimensional and axisymmetric cases are discussed first. The three-dimensional flow under cold-wall conditions is considered next. Finally, the boundary layer phenomena connected with ablation and mass transfer are considered. Author
