HYPERSONIC INTERACTION AT HIGH ALTITUDES,
LOCKHEED MISSILES AND SPACE CO SUNNYVALE CALIF
The linearized viscous flow equations are solved in approximate form for hypersonic speeds with slip boundary conditions for the case of a sharp two-dimensional leading edge. The results take into account the shock wave, the outer inviscid and inner viscid boundary-layer flows, as well as the interaction between them. Explicit results are given for the surface pressure dis tribution and comparison made with experiment. The theory is capable of predicting the various types and regions of validity of interaction phenomena. A future report will provide findings on this topic. Author
