Integral equation method for calculating plane, nearly homentropic flows around blunt bodies
Abstract
Integral equations describing the flow field in the general surroundings of a blunt body are given, assuming sufficiently small entropy changes due to compression shocks. The application of these equations to the numerical determination of steady solutions of boundary value problems is shown. Sample calculations of the limiting case of incompressible flow show good agreement with analytical results. For compressible flow, good agreement is found with results from other authors using different methods.
