Application of the linearized theory of supersonic flow to the estimation of control-surface characteristics
Description: Report presenting the use of known conical-flow solutions of the linearized equation for the velocity potential in supersonic flow as applied to the calculation of the characteristics of control surfaces. Solutions for the pressure distributions are obtained for control surfaces with hinge lines swept ahead or behind the Mach line when the control-surface trialing edge is swept ahead of the Mach line.
