Abstract : The research carried out under this contract can be divided into three main sections, namely (1) an experimental study of the thick, turbulent boundary-layer near the tail of a body of revolution, (2) methods of calculating the thick, axisymmetric, turbulent boundary-layer and its interaction with the potential flow, and (3) calculation of the viscous resistance of bodies of revolution at zero incidence. The progress made in each of these areas is reviewed.
