Using the given equations for the upper and lower surfaces:

Plug back eq. 1.3 and 1.4 in eq. 1.1 to find the equation for the pressure distribution:

For = 0 we found the following distribution, where both C pu and C pl are the same

We know that:

Where:

For this geometry u2 = l2 , then substituting eq. 1.4 in eq. 1.8 and integrating we get:

u2 = max

## Therefore, the eq. 1.7 may be re-written as:

Using eq. 1.6 and 1.10 we found the following values for the two given angle of attack:

2.33E-02

0.3700
6.25E-02

## To calculate the center of pressure location we did the following:

I.

Calculate the lift per unit length of each element of upper and lower surface:

(1.10)

yupper

L'iupper =
C pupper q x cos

x

II.

## Compute the total lift per unit length of each element:

( L )=
'
i total

III.

(1.11)

L'iupper + L'ilower

(1.12)

Determine the total lift and moment ( about the leading edge) of the airfoil:
n

L'wing = L'i
i =1

M=
wing
'

IV.

(1.13)

L x
'

i =1

## And finally find the pressure center location:

xcp =

L'/q_inf
M'/q_inf
xcp

'
M wing

L'wing

(1.14)

0.3690
-0.1845
0.500

The result is in agreement with the linear theory for supersonic airfoils, since it is at 50% of the
airfoil chord.

As we can see, the 2nd order theory shows that we have less suction in the upper surface and more positive
pressure in the lower surface for positive angles of attack when compared with the linear theory.

## The wave drag is given by:

64V 2
u2
DW =
4
l
Using the following values for the given altitude and speed:

We found:

Dw = 123.30[lbs ]

(1.15)

The previous charts and table shows how the wave drag changes with the length for a fixed volume body.
We can see that the drag drastically decays as we increase the body length, but to calculate the body total
drag we have also to consider the skin friction drag, that is proportional to the wet surface area, and then to
the body length. Therefore, we must find an optimum length that minimizes the total drag, which for this
case must be something between 10 and 20 ft.

The wave drag coefficient for a von Karman body is given by:

db 1
=
CDw =
0.04
=
l 5

S B = 78.53 ft 2
q = 6142.77[lbs / ft 2 ]

(1.16)

=
Dw S=
19298.09[lbs ]
B q C Dw

(1.17)

## The conical forebody wave drag:

Dw = 20262.99[lbs ]

(1.18)

The radial distribution in the von Karman body is given by (as function of ):

r ( )
=

s (l )
sin ( 2 )
+

2
2

(1.19)

## And for the conical body:

r ( x )=

x db

l 2

Then we have the following radius distribution along the body length:
