Title: LOVEL: a low-velocity aerodynamic heating code for flat-plates, wedges, and cones

The LOVEL computer program calculates the boundary-layer edge conditions for subsonic and supersonic flow over flat-plate, wedge, and cone geometries for freestream Mach conditions (M/sub infinity/ < 3. Cold-wall heat-transfer calculations use reference temperature correlations based on boundary-layer edge Mach number to compute fluid properties. The first part of this report describes the theory used in the computation of the cold-wall heat-transfer rates; the second part describes in detail the input/output format for the LOVEL computer program. Outputs include freestream conditions, boundary-layer edge conditions, cold-wall heat-transfer rates, plots of heating rates, and punched-card output for use in ablation and in-depth transient heat-conduction computer codes.
