Abstract:

Stones solution for a slightly yawing supersonic cone takes advantage of the fact that the differential equations equation of motion, equation of continuity, etc. to be solved for flow over a slightly yawing cone are identical with the differential equations that must be solved for flow over a non-yaw cone with small but finite w-components of velocity caused by external forces. This identity implies that any solution obtained for the second problem must be applicable to the first flow problem provided the boundary conditions were properly chosen.
