THE MODELLING OF VISCOUS RESISTANCE USING TWO-DIMENSIONAL BODIES
The longitudinal pressure gradients that occur along a Lucy Ashton mirror image model and its equivalent perimeter body of revolution were reproduced on a two-dimensional wing-like model. Tentatively it is suggested that longitudinal pressure gradient effects are insufficient to explain the behaviour of the local skin friction distribution. Order from NSFI as No. 17432.
