Description: From Introduction: "The primary purpose of the investigation described in the present report is to formulate a method which is of value for quantitative calculations of base pressure on airfoils and bodies without boat-tailing. Part I consists of a detailed study of the base pressure in two-dimensional and axially-symmetric inviscid flow. In part II a semi-empirical theory is formulated since the results of part I indicate that an inviscid-flow theory cannot possibly be satisfactory for quantitative calculations of a viscous flow."
