A Theoretical Study of the Effect of Upstream Transpiration Cooling on the Heat-Transfer and Skin-Friction Characteristics of a Compressible, Laminar Boundary Layer
Description: Note presenting an analysis which predicts the skin-friction and heat-transfer characteristics of a compressible, laminar boundary layer on a solid flat plate preceded by a porous section that is transpiration cooled. The analysis is restricted to a Prandtl number of unity and linear variation of viscosity with temperature. Results regarding a comparison of polynomial and exact velocity distribution, skin friction, heat transfer, and some practical implications of results are provided.
