Abstract : Temperature measurements on a protuberance and a cavity mounted on a Black Brant III sounding rocket are reported. These are analysed to give distributions of local heat transfer coefficients. Supporting wind tunnel measurements of surface pressures and surface flow visualization are also presented. (Author)
