Solomon, George E. (1953) Transonic flow past cone-cylinders. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-05122003-103200
Experimental results are presented for transonic flow past cone-cylinder, axially symmetric bodies. The drag coefficient, surface Mach number, etc. are studied as the free stream Mach number is varied and, wherever possible, the experimental results are compared with theoretical predictions. Interferometric results for several typical flow configurations are shown and an example of shock-free supersonic to subsonic compression is experimentally demonstrated.
The theoretical problem of transonic flow past finite cones is discussed briefly and an approximate solution of the axially symmetric transonic equations, valid for a semi-infinite cone, is presented.
