Abstract : A short, straightforward program has been developed for the numerical calculation of viscous flow solutions for arbitrary closed bodies of revolution. Flow solutions have been computed for a variety of body shapes. Results compared well with analytic theory where it exists, but for many bodies there has been no theoretical investigation. (Author)
