The calculation of downwash behind wings of arbitrary plan form at supersonic speeds

John C. Martin
Jul 1950

Exact and approximate methods based upon linearized supersonic flow theory have been developed for the calculation of the velocity potential and the downwash from thin wings of arbitrary plan form. Particular attention is given to the evaluation of the downwash in the plane of the wing.
