Abstract:

A computer program has been written to calculate the heat transfer on the windward side of a delta wing in hypersonic flow. The program utilizes the small crossflow theory of Vaglio-Laurin. Heat transfer values are calculated for both the laminar and turbulent boundary layer cases, and results are compared with experimental data on delta wings available in the literature.
