The Method of Characteristics for the Determination of Supersonic Flow Over Bodies of Revolution at Small Angles of Attack
Description: Note presenting the use of the method of characteristics for the determination of the supersonic-flow properties around bodies of revolution at a small angle of attack. The system developed considers the effect of the variation of entropy due to the curved shock and determines a flow that exactly satisfies the boundary conditions in the limits of the simplifications assumed.
