Aerodynamics - Update to Data Item 73017c
Featured Product from IHS ESDU
Reynolds number, speed of sound, dynamic viscosity, kinetic pressure and total pressure coefficient in air
ESDU 73017C presents graphs of Reynolds number/metre in an International Standard Atmosphere for Mach numbers to 10 and heights in metres or feet to 32,000 m (105,000 ft)
A graph also gives the Reynolds number in a wind tunnel working section for Mach numbers to 10 as a function of reservoir pressure and temperature. Curves of the speed of sound as a function of pressure and temperature, and dynamic viscosity as a function of temperature, are given. Kinetic pressure in an International Standard Atmosphere is shown graphically for Mach numbers to 10 and heights in metres or feet to 32 000 m (105 000 ft). Finally, the isentropic compressible flow expression for total pressure coefficient is given and shown as a graph to a Mach number of 10.
