Abstract:

List of Research Objectives 1 develop the formalism for the general similarity solution of the Tricomic equation which is the hodograph equation of transonic small-disturbance theory 2 study higher order approximations in perturbation theory, for transonic flow with the aim of clarifying the ambiguity of the transonic similarity parameter K and 3 study the nose singularity for a rounded nose airfoil in transonic flow and develop a local approximation based on the exact equations.
