Description

"The complex problem of the interaction between shock waves and boundary layers in supersonic flow is not yet clearly understood, despite a number of theoretical studies. Among these, the analysis of Tsein and Finston is singled out here for further examination. In the Tsien-Finston model the boundary layer is simulated by a uniform subsonic stream of finite width bounded on one side by a solid wall and on the other side by the interface with a uniform supersonic stream of semi-infinite extent" (p. 2).

National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Collection

The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915 to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958 the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
