Abstract : Expressions for the creep stresses and displacements in a conical shell at a small angle of attack to a supersonic flow field are obtained. The flow is assumed to be steady adiabatic and the cone is approximated by a membrane shell. Surface shear stresses are found to have a negligible effect on the solutions. On the other hand, temperature distributions which differ slightly from a given uniform valve result in displacements which differ significantly from those obtained using the uniform temperature.
