Abstract:

This report considers some problems of transonic gasdynamics related to the theory of planar and three-dimensional flows of a perfect gas which have been worked out mainly by the author and his collaborators. Results of analytical investigations of a number of exact properties of solutions which describe the flow around bodies with a detached shock, are presented without proof in the form of theorems proofs are to be found in the papers cited. Results of numerical solutions obtained by the methods of integral relations and large particles, are presented for the complete problem of transonic flow around blunt bodies whose profiles possess sharp corners. The boundaries of distinct minimal domains of influence in mixed flow about blunt bodies are also examined.
