Abstract : Two fortran computer programs have been developed to solve the problem of laminar boundary layers on sharp and blunt cones at angle of attack to nonuniform free streams. An existing three-dimensional boundary layer program was modified to introduce nonuniform edge properties to the boundary layer on a sharp cone. A combination of axisymmetric and three-dimensional boundary layer programs was modified to solve the boundary layer on a blunt cone in nonuniform streams. The inviscid flow fields over blunt cones are predicted from blunt body and three-dimensional method of characteristics solutions. Conical flow field solutions are used over sharp cones in uniform streams, and three-dimensional method of characteristics solutions are used over sharp cones in nonuniform streams.
