ADVANCED RE-ENTRY SYSTEMS HEAT-TRANSFER MANUAL FOR HYPERSONIC FLIGHT
Final rept. Oct 1964-Aug 1965
BOEING CO SEATTLE WA
Pagination or Media Count:
An advanced re-entry systems heat transfer handbook for hypersonic flight has been developed using aerothermodynamic prediction methods developed during the X-20A Dyna Soar Program. It contains 1 design procedures for computing aerodynamic heating rates to re-entry vehicle configurational elements, 2 discussion on differences between aerodynamic heat transfer and pressure distribution observed in present day wind tunnels and those which would occur in actual free flight, 3 wind tunnel to flight extrapolation factors, 4 simplified expressions for estimating stagnation point and swept cylinder turbulent stagnation line heating rates, and 5 graphs for rapid calculation of heating rates and extrapolation to flight factors. The information presented is applicable to complex maneuverable vehicles as well as ballistic bodies.
