Abstract:

An investigation of the effect of lift on sonicboom intensity was performed by means of windtunnel measurements of the pressure fields surrounding small wing-body combinations. Effects of lift were found to be real and significant. Measured bow-shock intensities agreed fairly well with, but were consistently less than, shock intensities estimated by theoretical methods. Available flight data were examined for correlation with wind-tunnel test results. Author
