Abstract : Experimental measurements of the profile characteristics of the supersonic turbulent boundary layer in a region of moderate adverse pressure gradient and an analysis of the data are reported. The data are for a closely adiabatic wall at a tunnel nozzle setting of M = 3.54. All measurements necessary for a complete set of profile data were made. Turbulent boundary layer equations are analyzed by numerical integration using the tabulated profile data. The data correlated in law of the wall and velocity defect dimensionless coordinates using an integral compressibility transformation. Distributions of eddy viscosity and mixing length are calculated using the mean profile data. (Author)
