Abstract : The work investigated the incompressible flow within the boundary layer of a body of revolution at incidence, using slender body theory to describe the inviscid flow field. The calculations were made by digital computer, using adaptive procedures to keep close control of truncation errors. The results obtained confirm previously published expectations of the state of the flow. (Author)
