Abstract : The viscous transonic small disturbance equation was recast into a form which displays the role of the usual inviscid transonic similarity parameter and of a newly defined viscous transonic similarity parameter in the two dimensional flow past slender bodies. Using the approximate method of Hosokawa the solution for viscous transonic flow past a wavy wall was obtained in analytical form, and displays the role of the above similarity parameters. The influence of the Reynolds number and free stream Mach number on the supersonic pockets which arise at the wall surface was investigated.
