Description: Note presenting the incompressible boundary-layer theory of Truckenbrodt extended using a modified Stewartson-type transformation to include compressible boundary-layer development over insulated surfaces. The method is applicable to two-dimensional and axisymmetric, laminar and turbulent boundary layer, and accounts for the pressure gradient along the wall for both compressible and incompressible flow. Some experimental measurements of the boundary layer on small axisymmetric bodies on the wall of a supersonic wind tunnel compared with theoretical predictions.
