    Description: Comparison of STS-2 Shuttle flight heating data along the windward centerline has been made with two-dimensional nonequilibrium viscous shock-layer solutions obtained with shock and wall-slip conditions at an altitude range of 90 to 110 km. The shock slip condition used is the modified Rankine-Hugoniot relations of Cheng as used by Davis, and the wall-slip conditions are based on the first order consideration derived from kinetic theory as given by Scott and Hendricks. The results indicate that the calculated heating distributions with slip boundary conditions agree better with the flight data than those without slip conditions. The agreement improves when the accommodation coefficient or freestream density is decreased to one-half, suggesting the possibility of less than full accommodation for the tile surface and (or) an overestimate of freestream density using the Jacchia-Roberts model. Heating reduction due to the slip effect becomes very pronounced as the flow becomes more rarefied, and the effect is more significant for the stagnation region than the aft region of the vehicle.
