Abstract : The problem of supersonic flow over an inclined flatplate delta wing with supersonic edges is solved to second order in incidence. This solution for surface pressure is uniform and fully analytic. The approach utilizes a reverse-flow integral method previously developed for secondorder problems. This method is augmented by a number of techniques appropriate to its framework. The simplification over standard techniques acgieved by using these reverse-flow methods is quite substantial and makes the problem tractible. Reverse-flow procedures give a volume-surface integral relation that connects the second-order forward flow over the body of interest with the linearized reverse-flow over a related body. A singular integral equation is generated from the integral relation by introducing the edge sweep of the reverse-flow wing as a free parameter. An inversion is available which gives the second-order solution on the surface of the wing. The solution is then made uniformly valid using techniques previously developed. (Author)
