Bera, Rajendra K and Ramachandra, SM (1976) Some theorems concerning drag minimization. Revue Roumaine des Sciences Techniques, Serie de Mecanique Appliquee, 21 . pp. 523-529.Full text not available from this repository.
Theorems are derived which, assuming linearized theory, show that a minimum drag wing configuration in forward flow is the same as that in reverse flow. It follows that it may be easier to design a wing in reverse flow and from this obtain the wing configuration in forward flow.
