Abstract:

In the first formulation. the integral equation for linearized steady supersonic flows appears in a form where it is necessary to approach the planform from above or below by a limiting process. In the present report, the problem is transformed analytically in such a manner that this limiting process no longer appears and that the resulting expressions are numerically tractable. It is believed that such a formulation gives more freedom to take the particularities of a given problem into account. The formulation is applied to compute the conical field which arises at the top of an airfoil. A possible numerical approach to the solution of the integral equation in the general case is described, but only in a rough outline.
