Abstract

Busemann biplane significantly reduces wave drag due to its thickness (or volume) at supersonic speeds using the shock wave interaction between the two wings. This paper investigates the influence of the three-dimensional effect to the rectangular wing using the biplane concept and considers the effects of various wing configurations which are a rectangular wing using a winglet, two tapered wing configurations and a Caret wing configuration based the Waverider concept.
