Title: Application of the linear perturbation theory to compressible flow about bodies of revolution
Authors: Young, A. D.
Kirkby, S.
Issue Date: Sep-1947
Abstract: The linearised theory is developed in some detail in order to clarify the differences between two-dimensional and axi-symmetric flow. In agreement with other authors it is concluded that the perturbation velocity on a thin body of revolution in compressible flow is 1/β2 times the perturbation velocity in incompressible flow on a thinner body at reduced incidence obtained by reducing the lateral dimensions of the original body in the ratio (3:1). This result is applied to a representative family of streamline bodies of revolution at zero incidence. Continues…
