Critical Mach Number We can estimate the freestream Mach number at which the flow first accelerates above 1 > M (locally) using the Prandtl-Glauert scaling and isentropic relationships. Recall from P-G: If we have ) 0 ( = M C p say from an incompressible panel solution, we could then find p C anywhere on the airfoil for higher M under the assumptions of P-G (linearized flow, ) 1 < M . We can also use isentropic relationships: + + = = 1 ) 1 ( 2 1 1 ) 1 ( 2 1 1 2 ) 1 ( 2 1 2 2 2 2 γ M M M C p p M C p p The p C for 1 = M at a given M is: This critical freestream M occurs when ).
