Abstract : The results of experimental investigations of the equilibrium temperature and heat transfer of a sphere in a supersonic rarefied air flow are discussed. The experiments were performed in an evacuated wind tunnel; the working flows were produced by three conical nozzles. The equilibrium temperature of the sphere was measured by the stationary method. The model was kept in the flow until its temperature stopped varying with time. The mean heat-transfer coefficients were measured by the non-steady-state method. The results are shown in graphic form. (Author)
