Abstract : A detailed study has been made of the solutions to cone boundary layer equations in the symmetry plane in order to increase understanding of the mathematical nature and physical meaning of these solution. A typical set of symmetry plane solutions is presented. Included in this set are various solution branches not previously published. A double-valued solution curve is found which has not been studied prior to this time except for one trivial point. The extension of an existing solution branch through a removable singular point has also been accomplished. The solutions presented are categorized according to whether they are dependent on or independent of the boundary layer outside the symmetry plane. The region in which no solutions to the usual symmetry plane equations exist is examined. It is noted that in this region the boundary layer model breaks down and conservation of mass is not satisfied at the symmetry plane. Nonanalytic behavior at the symmetry plane is investigated.
