A development of an equivalence between a fluid-mass source, a heat source, and streamwise body forces within the framework of linearized flow theory. Examples for a two-dimensional flat plate, a delta wing, an axially symmetric slender body, and a wedge-shaped afterbody are computed at subsonic and supersonic speeds.
