Design and testing of low sonic boom configurations and an oblique all-wing supersonic transport. [Christopher A Lee; United . Oblique-wing twin- and single-fuselage transonic transport models were wind tunnel tested and showed superior aerodynamic efficiency to that of fixed . An oblique wing (also called a slewed wing) is a variable geometry wing concept. On an aircraft so equipped, the wing is designed to rotate on center pivot, so that one tip is swept forward while the opposite tip is swept aft. By changing its sweep angle in this way, drag can be reduced at high speed (with the wing swept) without sacrificing.

3. Supersonic Wing Design The wing of a second generation supersonic transport will most likely have its leading edge(s) swept behind the Mach cone. Higher speeds mean higher sweep angles and less efficient subsonic aerodynamics unless the aircraft has variable geometry. At cruise conditions the flow.

The Oblique Flying Wing (OFW), also referred to as the Oblique All Wing (OAW) to distinguish it from the Ob-lique Wing Aircraft (OWA), is not just the optimum aero-dynamic design, it is also the optimal.

Hart and Thomas J. Beutner, “A Summary of a Half-Century of Oblique Wing Research,” AIAA Paper , A flying wing is a tailless fixed-wing aircraft that has no definite crew, payload, fuel, and equipment are typically housed inside the main wing structure, although a flying wing may have various small protuberances such as pods, nacelles, blisters, booms, or vertical stabilizers. Similar aircraft designs that are not, strictly speaking, flying wings, are sometimes referred to .

An N-wave signature has two rapid increases in pressure, one at the beginning and one at the end of the sonic boom.
