Three different approximate methods of solving the three-dimensional laminar boundary-layer equations are tested on a problem whose exact solution is known. From the comparison one of the methods, which is developed in ...
On the assumption that the/tow normal to the external streamlines is small compared with that along the external streamlines it is shown that the streamwise momentum equation, the energy equation and the equation of ...
A method for the calculation of three-dimensional turbulent boundary layers is given. It depends on the assumptions that the component of the velocity in the boundary layer parallel to the external streamlines follows a ...
The drag of an infinite swept wing is found in terms of the drag of a related unswept wing having the same relative position of transition. Results in incompressible flow are expressed in terms of a 'sweep factor'. Detailed ...
A solution to the problem of incompressible conical flow past a cone is presented, in which the boundary-layer equations are solved by an implicit finite difference procedure. Comparisons are made with experiments by ...
An attempt is made to estimate pressure distribution, tyre deflection and lift on a fully aquaplaning smooth tyre assuming an idealised non-viscous flow in front of the tyre followed by Stokes flow under the tyre. The ...
Slender theory with exact boundary conditions is used to calculate the flow past a thin conically cambered delta wing. The (spanwise) camber-line consists of a straight central part with two drooping pieces at the sides, ...
The boundary layer flow over a cone inclined at a small angle to a supersonic stream, and over a type of caret (Maikapar, Nonweiler) surface, as generalised by Townend, is calculated by an implicit finite difference method. ...
