HYPERSONIC FLOW OVER CONES

The Taylor-Maccoll equation for the supersonic flow of an ideal gas about a right circular cone with an attached shock wave is solved for the two cases of infinite free stream Mach numbers. The solution for the former is given in terms of an expansion in the limiting density ratio across the shock EsubL, and the solution to the latter in terms of a double expansion in the actual density ratio, E, and EsubL. The results are compared with a Taylor series solution to the Taylor-Maccoll equation and also with the exact values of Kopal for air and Mueller for helium. Author
