Abstract : This paper reviews the fictitious gas procedure of Sobieczky for finding shock-free airfoils and wings. Results for inviscid and viscous flows for airfoils and wings are described. The method is applied to a business jet planform resulting in a wing that should have good low speed characteristics as well as an M infinity L/D that is near the maximum achievable for the wing lift and thickness chosen for the study.
