The flow over a cone-cylinder body at Mach number one is computed by the method of Murman and Cole, with boundary conditions of the slender-body approximation and the Guderley’s asymptotic solution. The local analytical solutions are obtained at the tip region of the cone and in the neighborhood of the shoulder. Detailed knowledge of the whole pattern is of use in considering the wind tunnel effects.
