Volume II is a user's manual for the computer programs and provides the detailed information needed to set up and use the programs. These programs can determine the supersonic flow past smooth blunted bodies for any angle of attack for which the initial value surface remains on the blunted nose. The lowest usable Mach number is on the order of 2.0, with lower values attainable by careful attention to the initial value surface solution. There is no computational upper limit on the Mach number. (Author)
