ABSTRACT

Flow structure and aerodynamic characteristics of a double-wedged airfoil at transonic velocities, as well as the peculiarities of transition from subsonic to supersonic flow regime, are discussed in this paper. The interest in this airfoil is caused by the fact that it is considered to be an optimal airfoil from the viewpoint of wave drag within the framework of ideal gas theory. Its aerodynamics was actively investigated both theoretically and experimentally in 1950s–1960s.
