Wing-body interference at supersonic speeds with an application to combinations with rectangular wings

Jack N. Nielsen, William C. Pitts
Apr 1952

An exact theoretical method is developed that permits the determination of the pressure field of a wing-body combination having a circular body and a wing with supersonic leading and trailing edges. Detailed calculations have been performed for wing-body combinations composed of rectangular wings mounted at incidence on bodies at zero angle of attack for effective chord-radius ratios of 4 or less.
