Abstract : The laminar boundary layer equations in integral form are solved on the mechanical differential analyzer. The method of analysis permits the use of the best known variation of the air properties with temperature. Solutions are obtained for Mach numbers ranging from incompressible speeds to the hypersonic regime at ambient temperatures of 100, 400 and 800R for both insulated plate and heat transfer cases. From these results an approximate design procedure for the calculation of the characteristics of both the laminar and turbulent boundary layers is obtained and presented as an aid to missile designers.
