Perturbation methods in transonic flow
Abstract
The perturbation theory for transonic flow is further developed for two and three dimensional problems. The physical perturbation theory, in which the perturbation parameter is a physical quantity, is applied to solutions of the NavierStokes equations in two dimensions. The mathematical perturbation theory, in which the perturbation parameter is a measure of the difference between approximate and exact solutions, is applied both to the threedimensional potential flow problems and to the twodimensional NavierStokes equations. The strained coordinate technique is used to treat changes in location of any shock waves or large gradients.
