Significant new results are presented to show to what extent a simplified theory for transonic flow may be used. Solutions are obtained by classical techniques and compared with experiment. Results are given for two-dimensional and three-dimensional, steady and unsteady flow. The effects of flow separation and improvements in Bernoulli's equation and the surface boundary condition are also briefly discussed
