Abstract:

The inviscid flow fields about a hemispherically blunted cone 9 degree half-angle were calculated at five hypersonic Mach numbers. The calculation is begun in the subsonic region by the method of Vaglio-Laurin and Ferri and extended into the near wake by the method of characteristics. The air was taken to be a mixture of perfect gases, either chemically frozen or in thermodynamic equilibrium. Results from these calculations were used as initial data for rate and wake calculations.
