Method for Evaluating From Shadow or Schlieren Photographs the Pressure Drag in Two-Dimensional or Axially Symmetrical Flow Phenomena With Detached Shock
Description: "A method has been developed for evaluating from shadow or schileren photographs the pressure drag of axially symmetrical bodies at zero angle of attack or of two-dimensional bodies producing detached shock. The method consists in the determination of the flow properties along a characteristic line and the application of the momentum theorem to a stream tube around the body. The method can be applied to the determination of external drag of supersonic inlets with subsonic flow at the entrance of the inlet" (p. 1).
