A physically perceptive model is presented for the flow field and convective transport processes in the vicinity of reattachment of a planar, supersonic, turbulent flow. Control volume methods are utilized extensively in the analysis and the restating integral equations are solved by various numerical search techniques. The analysis enables one to determine significant parameters in the flow field as well as the heat transfer distribution and associated wall temperature of the reattachment surface. Also presented is a general correlation of predicted results for the convection process in terms of pertinent independent variables. The correlated results are shown to agree with measurements for a wide range of test conditions.
