Abstract: The steady two-dimensional flow of a compressible fluid past a flat plate inclined to the uniform stream is studied on the basis of the Oseen approximation. The use of the momentum equations written in distributions allows us to obtain in a straight-forward fashion the integral equations of the skin friction and of the lift. These equations are integrated for various values of the Reynolds and Mach numbers. The values obtained for the lift in the limit case of the inviscid fluid coincide with those known in conventional aerodynamics for the subsonic and for supersonic flow.
