An analysis of pressure studies and experimental and theoretical downwash and sidewash behind five pointed-tip wings at supersonic speeds

William B. Boatright
Apr 1954

Flow-angle and pressure surveys behind five, thin, pointed-tip wings of varying plan form have been made at Mach numbers 1.62 and 2.41. Also, preliminary schlieren studies at a Mach number 1.93 for the same five plan-form wings were made to illustrate the behavior of the vortex sheet.
