Pagination or Media Count:
A brief historical survey leading to problems of current interest is given. The problem of thin three-dimensional lifting wings is formulated on the basis of transonic small-disturbance theory. Various overall integral formulas and similarity laws for lift and drag are discussed. The problem of plane mixed flow past an airfoil is set up and the far field discussed. Remarks are made about computation methods and the role of exact hodograph solutions. Author
