Abstract : Flowfield surveys were obtained in the hypersonic viscous shock layer on a sharp flat plate with probes measuring the local molecular speed-ratio and local values of the product of density, velocity, and total enthalpy. The data define a disturbance boundary upstream of the leading edge where compression effects first begin, and a boundary within the shock layer where viscous heating effects begin to dominate over the compression effects.
