Abstract : Calculation of the boundary layer induced Magnus force on a spinning cone is given. A new technique to calculate the laminar boundary layer flow over a spinning cone at small angles of attack has been developed, and has yielded the information needed to calculate the Magnus force. The results include both the centrifugal pressure gradient and crossflow wall shear contributions to the Magnus force, and also give the boundary layer displacement thicknesses.
