An analysis is presented which predicts the skin-friction and heat-transfer characteristics of a compressible, laminar boundary layer on a solid flat plate preceded by a porous section that is transpiration cooled. The analysis is restricted to a Prandtl number of unity and linear variation of viscosity with temperature.
