The results indicate that inclusion of viscous drag alters many previous results regarding the desirability of certain airfoil shapes for securing low drags at supersonic speeds. At certain Reynolds and Mach numbers, for instance, a circular-arc airfoil may theoretically have less drag than the previously advocated symmetrical wedge-shape profile; although under different conditions, the circular-arc airfoil may have a higher drag.</p>Performance of B.

The general problem of steady irrotational flow past an arbitrary body is formulated. Two examples were carried out, namely, the flow past a circular cylinder and the flow past a thin curved surface. The variational method yields results of velocity and pressure distributions which compare excellently with those found by existing methods. These results indicate that the variational method will yield good approximate solution for flow past both thick and thin bodies at both high and low Mach numbers.</p>Summary of 65-Series Compressor-Blade Low-Speed Cascade Data by Use of the Carpet-Plotting Technique2014-09-25T20:32:43-05:00http://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc100823/<p><a href="http://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc100823/"><img alt="Summary of 65-Series Compressor-Blade Low-Speed Cascade Data by Use of the Carpet-Plotting Technique" title="Summary of 65-Series Compressor-Blade Low-Speed Cascade Data by Use of the Carpet-Plotting Technique" src="http://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc100823/thumbnail/"/></a></p><p>Carpet plots included permit the selection of the blade camber and the design angle of attack required to fulfill a design vector diagram.

It was found that for finite Mach numbers the only case in which the nature of the singularity can remain unchanged is for a ratio of specific heats equal to -1. From a study of two particular flows it seems that the effect of geometry cannot be neglected, and the conventional "pressure-correction" formulas are not valid, even in the subsonic region if the body is thick, especially if there is a supersonic region in the flow.</p>Charts for the Computation of Equilibrium Composition of Chemical Reactions in the Carbon-Hydrogen-Nitrogen System at Temperatures from 2000 to 5000 Degrees K2014-09-25T20:32:43-05:00http://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc100821/<p><a href="http://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc100821/"><img alt="Charts for the Computation of Equilibrium Composition of Chemical Reactions in the Carbon-Hydrogen-Nitrogen System at Temperatures from 2000 to 5000 Degrees K" title="Charts for the Computation of Equilibrium Composition of Chemical Reactions in the Carbon-Hydrogen-Nitrogen System at Temperatures from 2000 to 5000 Degrees K" src="http://digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc100821/thumbnail/"/></a></p><p>Charts are provided for the estimation and progressive adjustment of two independent variables on which the calculations are based.
