Abstract:

The flow about the aerofoils is examined with particular attention to the expansive flow, to supersonic speeds, on the blunt leading edges, and to the subsequent compression. The movements of stagnation and sonic points are analysed. The shock structure in the supersonic compression process is explained, with the aid of a characteristics network. The effects of blunting on lift and lift-drag ratio are considered.
