Abstract : The report investigates the possibility of maintaining laminar flow and lowering heat transfer rates at M = 5 by means of continuous injection of air into the boundary layer. It was found that laminar flow is theoretically possible for the mass transfer parameter investigated for wall-to-stream temperature ratios less than 1.45. The heat transfer rate is reduced appreciably from that of laminar flow. (Author)
