Description: "The question to be treated is: how high is the pressure in the bow wave caused by a body flying at supersonic speed, and how far reaching are the destructive effects of that wave? The pressure distribution on an s.S. and an S. projectile of normal speed has been ascertained already by the methods of measurement used at the Ballistic Institute of the Technical Academy of the German Air Forces. Now similar investigations of the conditions on especially fast-flying bodies were carried out" (p. 1).
