Laminar-boundary-layer heat-transfer characteristics of a body with a pressure gradient at supersonic speeds

William R. Wimbrow, Richard Scherrer
Aug 1950

Local rates of heat transfer have been measured over the negative pressure-gradient region of a pointed body of revolution with a fineness ratio of 6:1, a vertex angle of 37 degrees, and a contour generated by rotating a segment of a parabola.
