Turbulent boundary layer on a yawed cone in a supersonic stream

Willis H. Braun
Jan 1958

The momentum integral equations are derived for the boundary layer on an arbitrary curved surface, using a streamline coordinate system. Computations of the turbulent boundary layer on a slightly yawed cone are made for a Prandtl number 0.70, wall to free-stream temperature ratios of 1/2, 1, and 2, and Mach numbers from 1 to 4. Deflection of the fluid in the boundary layer from outer stream direction, local friction coefficient, displacement surface, lift coefficient, and pitching-moment coefficient are presented.
