Abstract:

The wind-tunnel equipment for investigating flow characteristics at supersonic speeds is nearly ready for use. A theoretical investigation was conducted on certain aspects of interaction between shock waves and boundary layer in transonic and supersonic flow. Calculations are in progress which may be used to determine characteristics of the wake behind the two-dimensional airfoil in supersonic flow. An attempt is being made to clarify interaction between oblique shock waves and the laminar boundary layer in case of plane supersonic flow in a corner.
