Abstract:

Equations and charts are presented for the determination of the aerodynamic forces and moments of spherically blunted cones in hypersonic flow by the modified Newtonian theory. The equations are valid for cone half-angles from 0 to 90 deg and angles of atack from 0 to 180 deg charts are presented for cone half-angles from 5 to 40 deg and angles of attack from 0 to 90 deg. A comparison of Newtonian theory predictions with experimental data is presented.
