Abstract:

As a first step towards the computation of the velocity distribution along a wing profile of arbitrary shape in a compressible fluid, the circulation-free flow around a symmetrical profile is treated under the assumption of the simplified density-speed relation due to Chaplygin, Karman, and Tsien. The velocity distribution problem is reduced to a non-linear integral equation which is solved by a fairly rapidly convergent iteration method. Numerical examples are given.
