To break the sound barrier an aircraft must be traveling 767 miles per hour, and is considered supersonic, anything…

    While designing any aerodynamic body an unspoken assumption of bilateral or mirror symmetry is taken into consideration. Argument against this bilateral symmetry states that “once the velocity of sound is exceeded, the laws of aerodynamics change in such a way as to make it seem inadvisable to arrange the components of an airplane side by side or abreast in a supersonic stream unless there are compelling reasons for such an arrangement.“ 2.1.1 Wave Drag This type of drag is formed as a result…

    P-51 and De Havilland Mosquito broke multiple speed records, but the world feels limited. Aircraft of the day using simple wooden propellers weren’t able to handle extreme speeds and therefore, propeller driven aircraft were not able to reach supersonic speed. Now, rather than for war, the US is working on breaking the sound barrier. The world at this time realized that a new type of propulsion would be needed to commit such a feat. As NASA test pilot Chuck Yeager stated, “The real barrier…

This meant that the Concorde disaster could have been prevented if actions had been taken when early indications of safety issues had…
