Abstract

Abstract Transonic flows in the neighbourhood of a corner point on a profile are investigated in a class of self-similar solutions of Karman's equation. The corner point is formed by the intersection of two smooth curves, the tangents to which make a convex angle. The generatrix, which lies in the subsonic part of the flow is assumed to be curvilinear and to vary according to a power law. Values of the self-similarity index are found for which transonic flows are possible either with a free streamline or with a rarefaction wave.
