Abstract : Equations were developed for the flow properties in the region bounded by a supersonic cone body at large angle of attack and its attached shock wave, for use with the tabulations of Kopal. A comparison of the theoretical results is made with the experimental data of Cronvich. A slight discrepancy which increases with increasing Mach number was found in the value of K sub DYH, the yawing head drag as tabulated by Kopal. (Author)
