On the application of Mathieu functions in the theory of subsonic compressible flow past oscillating airfoils

Eric Reissner
May 1951

An account is given of explicit solutions in terms of Mathieu function functions of the problem of two-dimensional subsonic compressible flow past oscillating airfoils. The results are applied to the calculation of three-dimensional corrections for the two-dimensional theory and the effect of the incorporation of the three-dimensional theory effect on the Mathieu function solution of the two-dimensional problem is shown.
