Abstract : Methods for computing numerically the flow past blunted bodies travelling at supersonic speed are developed, using finite difference schemes. The algorithms were constructed to deal with 2-D axisymmetric and 3-D configurations. Various configurations were investigated and the flow field around them computed. Comparison with available semi-empirical results for blunted cones at Mach number 3 shows good agreement. The 3-D algorithm was applied to an axisymmetric configuration and the results thus obtained show good agreement with the axisymmetric calculation. All the calculations are for the inviscid gas-dynamic case. (Author)
