Summary
Reentry trajectories, including computations of convective and radiative stagnation-point heat transfer, have been calculated by using equations for a point-mass reentry vehicle entering the atmosphere of a rotating, oblate earth. Velocity was varied from 26,000 to 45,000 feet per second; reentry angle, from the skip limit to -20°; ballistic drag parameter, from 50 to 200. Initial altitude was 400,000 feet. Explicit results are presented in charts which were computed for an initial latitude of 38° N and an azimuth of 90° from north. A method is presented whereby these results may be made valid for a range of initial latitude and azimuth angles.
