Abstract : A program is presented for calculating laminar and turbulent boundary layer heat transfer and skin friction drag on either a flat plate or a sharp cone during high-speed flight. Three turbulent skin friction laws, the Winkler-Cha, the Spalding-Chi and the Blasius-Sommer and Short are used so that comparative values can be found. The calculations are provided by a computer program which was written for an IBM 7090 computer operating under the IBSYS monitor. The mathematical formulations of the skin friction laws and the computer program are presented. Included with the program is a complete Fortran listing and all necessary instructions required for its use. (Author)
