The influence of wall thermal resistance on stagnation and supersonic wedge flow is studied in this paper. The equation of heat conduction inside the wall is transformed by a suitable approximation into boundary conditions for the equations of heat transfer in the fluid, which are then solved for several situations. The method of solution is based on series expansions, the convergence of which is improved through the Padé approximation technique. The results, exact for all purposes in the entire field, are discussed in terms of the interface temperature and Nusselt number.
