.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 ρ∞u∞2 DW = 4 πl Using the following values for the given altitude and speed: We found: Dw = 123.30[lbs ] (1.15) .

and then to the body length.16) .04  =  l  5 S B = 78. 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.77[lbs / ft 2 ] (1. that is proportional to the wet surface area.53 ft 2 q∞ = 6142. The wave drag coefficient for a von Karman body is given by: 2 2  db   1  = CDw  =  0. which for this case must be something between 10 and 20 ft. Therefore. we must find an optimum length that minimizes the total drag.The previous charts and table shows how the wave drag changes with the length for a fixed volume body.
