Abstract : An axisymmetric viscous-transonic equation is presented. A nozzle type similarity solution of this equation has been found, which describes the initial stages in the development of shock-waves downstream of a converging- diverging nozzle throat. This solution is an extension of a two dimensional solution found previously (Sichel 1966). By an appropriate choice of an arbitrary scaling constant solutions were found such that there is essentially a weak normal shock near the axis with effects of wall and shock wave curvature occurring only at a sufficiently large radius. The upstream and downstream asymptotic behavior of these viscous-transonic nozzle solutions has been investigated.
