Calculation of drag coefficient of a flat semi-infinite heat-insulated plate in a hypersonic gas flow with slip is described. It is assumed that the region of flow between joined strong jumps of the packing and the plate consists of a non-viscous zone and laminar boundary layer. The strong interaction of the jump with the layer is considered. In calculation of the boundary layer the integral form of equation of pulses with linear profile of speed is used and taking into account the speed of slip. Parameters of flow on the external boundary of the boundary layer are calculated by the method of tangential wedges.
