Abstract:

A system of computer programs was developed to solve supersonic inviscid nonuniform flows over sharp and spherically blunted cones at angles of attack. For blunt cones the flow fields considered were axisymmetric wake flows situated so that flow in the subsonic nose region remained axisymmetric. For sharp cones both axisymmetric wake flows and two-dimensional shear flows were considered. The programs incorporate a modified inverse method for solving subsonic flow regions and modified axisymmetric and three-dimensional method of characteristics procedures for solving supersonic flow regions.
