Abstract

Two methods for determining wall friction in strongly perturbed supersonic turbulent boundary layers were compared. The two methods were found to agree well when the velocity profile displayed a region of logarithmic variation in the transformed plane. The best agreement was found in comparisons of the wall friction rather than the skin friction coefficient which requires determining boundary layer edge conditions, a difficult task in perturbed boundary layers.
