Abstract : Research performed during 1960 is summarized as follows. Work on momentum, heat, and mass transfer at high speed concerns homogeneous gases, gas-vapor mixtures, and evaporative cooling; work on free molecular flow concerns energy exchanges, mome tum exchanges, and the relations between interaction coefficients and sitting time of the molecules on the surface.
