Based on an expression given by Cooke, an equation is derived for a three-dimensional “equivalent radius” for cones at a small angle of attack. This function when used in any of the available axisymmetric boundary-layer equations yields corresponding solutions for yawed cones. Expressions for the streamlines along which the above equations are to be integrated are also derived. The method yields a line of possible incipient separation or wake formation in addition to the boundary-layer properties in both the longitudinal and circumferential direction. Numerical solutions including heat transfer effects are presented for a wind tunnel model and compared with experimental results.
