Abstract : An analysis is presented for the radiative cooling and nongray self-absorption effects on the radiating stagnation region shock layer and heat transfer using approximate nongray step models for the absorption coefficient. The results lend support to the potential use of simple step model absorption coefficients in lieu of detailed spectral variations for making engineering calculations. (Author)
