Abstract : The laminar boundary layer equations are solved for a flat plate in compressible flow where equilibrium dissociation of the air is assumed as well as variable air properties. Evaluation of the skin friction and heat transfer characteristics is made for a Mach number range 1 to 20. Both the insulated plate without radiation and the plate with heat transfer are considered.
