Abstract:

The analysis of convective heat and mass transfer to re-entry vehicles is reviewed with particular emphasis on relevant basic mass transfer theory. The topics covered include the inviscid flow field, diffusion phenomena, simple mass transfer analyses, surface chemistry, simple heat transfer analyses, the surface energy balance, laminar boundary layer analysis, and turbulent boundary layer analysis.
