Abstract : The results of measurements of aerodynamic forces and moments show that even for simple bodies the laws of aerodynamic characteristic behavior in the transition region are extremely complex. For example, certain characteristics in this region vary nonmonotonically, their values can exceed those of the free-molecular by several times, etc. The special features of hypersonic flow around bodies in the transition region are analyzed on the basis of experimental investigations of the heat-exchange processes.
