Abstract:

The effect of free-stream flow gradients upon the pressures measured along a thin body was studied. An expansion procedure using the Mach number gradient as the expansion parameter was used to determine the effect of these gradients upon the pressures measured on a wedge. These results were then used to determine the effect of the flow gradients upon other bodies, in particular, a flat plate with a blunted leading edge. A comparison with experimental and exact calculated values indicates that this method is in better agreement with the uniform flow pressure distribution than the methods presently in use. Author
