Discussion of a simple hand calculation method for determining wave or pressure drag of a nonuniform body at supersonic speed. In the past, even the simplest calculation proved to be a tedious process -- prone to errors.
The author introduces the use of two-dimensional methods to solve these three-dimensional problems and justifies the use of this method by demonstrative calculations.
