|Title: ||Application of the linear perturbation theory to compressible flow about bodies of revolution|
|Authors: ||Young, A. D.|
|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…|
