Abstract : Properties of the nonequilibrium hypersonic turbulent wake have been calculated from an integral solution for the coupled diffusion of mass and energy. Emphasis is placed on: a comparison of a slender body calculation from the present simple method with results obtained for the same case by more advanced mathematical techniques such as finite difference methods; new blunt body results in which the reacting inviscid flow is entrained by the turbulent inner wake; the effect of contaminants on both slender and blunt body wakes; and a comparison of the present calculations with ballistic range measurements for wake velocity and electron density.
