Application of two-dimensional vortex theory to the prediction of flow fields behind wings of wing body combinations at subsonic and supersonic speeds

A theoretical investigation has been made of a general method for predicting the flow field behind the wings of plane and cruciform wing and body combinations at transonic or supersonic speeds and slender configurations at subsonic speeds. The wing trailing-vortex wake is represented initially by line vortices distributed to approximate the spanwise distribution of circulation along the trailing edge of the exposed wing panels.
