dc.description.abstract Calculations of the pressure on a flat elliptic cone and on a flat elliptic hyper-cone at supersonic speeds and zero incidence are made for the case when the cones lie inside the Mach cone of the apex. The results are combined to give the pressure distribution and drag of a wing-like surface at zero incidence in a supersonic stream. It is found that the pressure is constant along straight lines on this surface which are normal to the wind direction. The drag results show the effect of sweepback on drag at supersonic speeds. en_US
