The Effect of Compressibility on the Growth of the Laminar Boundary Layer on Low-Drag Wings and Bodies
Description: Report presenting a consideration of the development of the laminar boundary layer in a compressible fluid. Formulas are given for determining the boundary-layer thickness and the boundary-layer Reynolds number, which is a measure of the boundary-layer stability, for airfoils and bodies of revolution.
