In this paper, an approximate axisymmetric method is developed which can reliably calculate fully viscous hypersonic flow over blunt-nosed bodies. In this method, a Maslen’s second-order pressure expression is used instead of the normal momentum equation. The combination of Maslen’s second-order pressure expression and viscous shock layer equations is developed to accurately and efficiently compute hypersonic flow fields of perfect gas around blunt-body configurations. The results show that, this combination leads to more accurate solutions and less extensive computer run times in the preliminary design environment. Furthermore, the utility of Cebeci-Smith turbulence model is adequate for application to long slender bodies. The results of these computations are found to be in good agreement with available numerical and experimental data.
