At present it is commonly assumed that some peculiar surface exists which bounds a viscous region around a body in a supersonic flow. This region is identified with a laminar or turbulent Prandtl layer, the process of transition of visible motion into heat being described by the procedures developed by Prandtl and von Kármán for subsonic flows. In the present work another approach is used based on the ideas of Osborne Reynolds and the so-called resolution equation where transition of thermal motion into pulsating one is fixed which, in its turn establishes relationship between the Nusselt and Reynolds numbers. This is a power-law relationship in which the coefficients and power exponent may be pre-calculated based on simple considerations. This has been done in the present work. © 1973.
