It has been shown that mass transfer affects the induced surface pressure from shock-wave boundary layer interaction on a flat plate. A logical extension of this is to broaden these considerations to include axi-symmetric configurations requiring retention of transverse curvature terms in the boundary layer equations. (The authors have considered this problem and the results will be published shortly.) In matching the inviscid and viscous flow solutions, it is necessary to investigate the effects of surface blowing on the vertical velocity component at the boundary between them.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
