study, separation of the space shuttle orbiter from a carrier vehicle was shown to be feasible for a range of dynamic-pressure and flight-path-angle conditions. By using an autopilot, the vehicle attitudes were held constant which ensured separation. Carrier-vehicle engine thrust, landing gear, and spoilers provide. Shuttle Infrared Leeside Temperature Sensing. the infrared camera system is mounted in such a way that it rotates to view the orbiter leeside surfaces through either of two windows-one offering a view of the orbiter fuselage and the other a view of the left wing. The camera is .   (ii) The Shuttle's enters the atmosphere at such a high velocity that the air under its path does not have an opportunity to disperse and is compressed. Compressing a gas causes it to heat. The radiant heat from the air that has been heated (by the compression) begins to . The evaluated average heat transfer coefficients α f are listed in Table 3. By using equation Q = α f ⋅Δt⋅A, the total heat transfer rates Q on the plate are obtained and listed in Table 3. Comparison of heat transfer coefficient predicted by the optimal formalized equations with .

Convective heat transfer enhancement can be achieved by generating secondary flow structures that are added to the main flow to intensify the fluid exchange between hot and cold regions. One method involves the use of vortex generators to produce streamwise and transverse vortices superimposed to the main flow. This study presents numerical computation results of laminar convection heat.
