Abstract : Effects of heat transfer on the separation of laminar boundary layers in supersonic flow are considered theoretically and experimentally. In theory, cooling the wall reduces the extent of regions of separation and steepens the pressure gradients, whilst heating the wall has opposite effects. The experimental results partially confirm these predictions. (Author)
