Abstract : The report describes a method of calculating aerodynamic heating for the purpose of evaluating materials for use as possible reentry heat shields. The procedure may be described as a simplified re-entry flight simulation. The report gives in detail the assumptions made, equations used, and the form of presentation of the results. It does not give the results of such calculations. (Author)
