Basic characteristics of the Von Karman radome configuration are examined and evaluated. Both general and specific results are developed that are required in analyses of stresses, heating effects, and aerodynamic behavior. As a numerical example, the envelope curve for all the principal radii of curvature is obtained for a 28.3 x 6.75 inch Von Karman radome. The numerical results are given in two tables and plotted in two figures. A graphical construction is also included to illustrate the relationship between parametric forms and other coordinates that define the profile curve. Author
