Abstract:

The conical inviscid flow field past a circular cone at an angle of attack is obtained as the asymptotic stage of a three-dimensional flow. The latter is computed in a spherical frame by means of finite difference techniques associated with a method of characteristics on the shock and body. A brief critical discussion of previous papers on the subject and an analysis of the numerical results are given. Comparison with experiments shows that the applicability of the theory is severely limited by boundary layer effects.
