Mar 1952

The local temperature-recovery factor of a turbulent boundary layer produced by natural transition on a thin-walled, metal, 10 degree cone was measured at Mach numbers 1.97 and 3.77 and at length Reynolds numbers, based on the surface kinematic viscosity, from 4 X 10(exp 5) to 4 X 10(exp 6).
