Abstract : Boundary layer growth at a leading edge behind three shock waves of strength Ms = 1.11, 1.19, and 1.44 have been followed by schlieren photography. Thicknesses measured by optical comparator at x 10 have shown that initial growth rates of the laminar portion of the boundary layer exceed that predicted by Mirels' theory.
