Abstract : This note presents one study of an extended investigation of flow around blunt bodies. The shock boundary conditions which must be satisfied at the unknown location of the detached shock are studied. The functional relations that must be satisfied at the shock are derived for axial symmetric spherical coordinates. A derivative matching procedure is considered for use in determining constants in a general solution. The procedure is shown to be extendible to any desired accuracy. (Author)
