Abstract : Calculations are performed of the enthalpy behaviour and of the wall heat flux in the stagnation region past a blunt axisymmetric body in hypersonic axial flow. The case of high-free-steam Mach number and consequently high temperature and low Prandtl number in the stagnation region is considered. By supposing equilibrium flow, two numerical examples are presented for Peclet number. (Author)
