Abstract : Blunted slender bodies at angles of yaw are studied using the similarity solution, i.e., blast wave theory, with modifications to predict experimental data to a high degree of accuracy. The yawed body is examined and the shock surface located on a hemisphere-cylinder combination. Further methods are proposed fr evaluation of prolated spheroid-cylinder and blunted cone configurations. (Author)
