Abstract : An investigation was made of the transfer of heat and the equilibrium temperature of a flat plate of limited thickness (limited in comparison with the mean molecular free path in the free gas stream), streamlined by a supersonic flow of rarefied air at a zero angle of attack. The models of the plate were of sufficient span to permit reference of the results of the investigations to the case of plane streamlining (plates of infinite span). The measurements of the heat-transfer coefficient and of the equilibrium temperatures were carried out at Mach number values ranging from 2.6 to 9. The investigations encompassed various streamlining conditions, beginning from the case in which the entire surface of the plate is subjected to virtually free-molecular gas flow and concluding with the case in which the flow of the gas over virtually the entire plate corresponds to the Navier-Stokes-Fourier continuum regime.
