The report presents a brief summary of the past progress, current status and development trends of transonic aerodynamics. The main methods to compute steady and unsteady transonic flows are reviewed. Also, recent advances in transonic buffet prediction and transonic airfoil design are summarized and attention is drawn to problems requiring further intensive research efforts. (Author)

Fan, Yue Sang (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1995-03);Viscous drag in the transonic regime over an axi-symmetric body with a unique aft contour surface is investigated. The forebody is composed of an arbitrary ellipsoid. The unique aft contour surface has been obtained by an ...
Carey, Edwin Fenton, Jr. (Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, 1976-03);According to the linearized solutions for thermal blooming, the density perturbations become infinite (i.e. "catastrophic" defocusing) as the Mach number approaches unity. However, the nonlinearities in the transonic ...
Villescas, Ivan J. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2005-09);Investigating the effect of steam ingestion into an aircraft jet engine is necessary to improve understanding of stall and surge in transonic axial compressors. Specifically, to understand the "pop stall" phenomenon ...
