Abstract:

Study concerns the aerodynamic characteristics of a wing disposed in a supersonic stream at some finite distance from the discharge of an axisymmetric supersonic jet. Such research requires that the flow field around an axisymmetric supersonic jet issuing from a nozzle inA SUPERSONIC STREAM BE KNOWN. A new method was used to study the flow in the jet, based on the use of particular singularities, called pseudosources, disposed on the jet axis. The main aspects of this method are developed and the method itself is applied to the simple case of a supersonic axisymmetric jet issuing in air at rest. The jet shape was determined and some of the main characteristics of the flow in the jet are examined. Satisfactory results were obtained. Author
