The method of characteristics as applied to a real gas assuming frozen composition along streamlines was used to compute the detailed supersonic flow field about the pellet geometry. The free stream velocity was 22,100 feet per second while the free stream pressure and temperature were 1 mm Hg and 300 K respectively. The calculation of the flow field properties in the subsonic region was performed. The air was assumed to be in thermal and chemical equibrium. The results of this calculation served as input to the frozen characteristics program which handles the computation of the entire supersonic flow field region up to the near wake shock.
