Time-dependent downwash at the tail and the pitching moment due to normal acceleration at supersonic speeds
Description: Report presenting an analysis of the time-dependent downwash behind a wing in a supersonic stream when the angle of attack varies linearly with time. The result is applied to the calculation of the contribution of the horizontal tail to the pitching moment and lift due to normal acceleration of the airplane. Results regarding downwash charts and some limitations on the results are provided.
