Abstract : Boundary layer profiles of total temperature and total pressure, together with surface pressure and heat transfer rates, in turbulent boundary layers with and without favorable pressure gradients have been measured with a Mach 6 wind tunnel facility. Experimental results were correlated and comparisons between the cases with and without favorable pressure gradient were made. Effects of pressure gradient and upstream history to the boundary layer development were investigated. Numerical results of an existing turbulent boundary layer theory were also compared with present experiments.
