Abstract : Supersonic flow past oscillating cylindrical shells and oscillating flat-plate cascades is analyzed using linearized characteristics methods. Pressure distributions and generalized aerodynamic forces are computed for arbitrary radius to length ratios, axial and circumferential wave numbers, Mach numbers, and reduced frequencies. Pressure distributions are computed for flat-plate cascades with supersonic leading edge locus for arbitrary solidity, stagger angle, frequency, and interblade phase angle. For comparison, a two-blade solution is developed using the method of singularities. (Modified author abstract)
