Abstract : This article may be of interest to the aerospace program, since it deals with flow regimes of bodies moving through the atmosphere at high velocities. It is one of a series of Soviet papers on aerodynamic and thermal characteristics of geometrical shapes immersed in low-density flow. The study of the flat-plate shape may be useful in the calculation of thermodynamic factors for a winged-entry glide vehicle with sharp leading edges. (Author)
