A study of skin temperatures of conical bodies in supersonic flight

Wilber B. Huston, Calvin N. Warfield, Anna Z. Stone
Oct 1948

A comparison is made between the time history of skin temperature measured on the nose of a V-2 missile and the time history of the temperature computed by the use of Eber's experimental relation for heat-transfer coefficients for conical bodies under supersonic conditions.
