Abstract : The supersonic flow over cones of arbitrary shape was investigated by using the method of integral relations. The equations are derived for one strip using a body-oriented coordinate system. Various choices for basic equations are discussed. The solution of the boundary value problem for a number of fundamentally different cases is discussed in detail and various suggestions concerning improvements of the method and other related methods are made. Due to severe computational difficulties, however, no numerical results are presented. (Author)
