DURING the first forty years or so of the history of manned flight, the application of aerodynamics was confined largely to subsonic speeds and to one basic aircraft shape. Since the end of the Second World War the aerodynamic domain has expanded in spectacular fashion in terms of speed and shape until at the present time ‘conventional’ manned aircraft are penetrating into the realms of hypersonic velocities and the satellite vehicle has brought with it aerodynamic problems at what must surely be the near‐ultimate speed range for the technology. Nor are these advances confined to high‐speed aerodynamics: they include radically new approaches to low‐speed problems, particularly those arising from take‐off and landing manoeuvres.
