Abstract : The specific objective of the program was to provide improved information on selected heat transfer processes along external or internal surfaces of high speed modern aircraft. The goal was to reduce empirical methods and enhance understanding of the processes so that needed design requirements calling for either reduced or increased heat transfer could be implemented. Three task areas were investigated. (Author)
