Wave drag coefficient of a model 'Busemann biplane' catamaran

L. Liebenberg, E. A. Bunt

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Tests conducted on a model 'Busemann biplane' catamaran in a towing basin qualitatively showed that the form of the wave drag coefficient curve followed the typical drag curve for a single unswept supersonic wing, but on this was superimposed that of the Busemann wave drag curve (giving a local minimum near the design Froude number).
