Abstract:

In the present report, a method is illustrated of obtaining more precise values of shock wave angle, pressure, Mach number, and drag coefficient from a given cone angle and velocity past the cone. From the Rankine-Hugoniot shock wave equations a single equation is obtained which fixes the position of the shock wave. Another term is obtained in Maccolls Taylor expansion about the surface of the cone which permits the use of a larger integral of integration with the same degree of smoothness and accuracy previously obtained for smaller intervals.
