Abstract : The report concerns the calculation of coupled skin friction and heat transfer in compressible, turbulent, three-dimensional boundary layers. It presents an integral method of solution which assumes law-of-the-wall velocity and temperature correlations and results in three, coupled partial differential equations whose dependent variables are the dimensionless components of local skin friction and the dimensionless local heat transfer. The method allows for the specification of arbitrary distributions of free stream pressure, Mach number and wall temperature. The present theory is capable of handling problems of extreme complexity with moderate difficulty. (Modified author abstract)
