Abstract : The method of Cohen and Reshotko for calculation of compressible laminary boundary layer with heat transfer and arbitrary pressure gradient is extended to equilibrium dissociated air. Both products of density and viscosity and density and enthalpy must be assumed constant across boundary layer. Satisfactory results are obtained when product of density and viscosity is evaluated at reference enthalpy and product of density and enthalpy is evaluated at boundary layer edge.
