Newtonian theory was applied, in this analysis, to the elliptic cone
segment at angles of attack and sideslip. Closed form expressions fer
the aerodynamic coefficients and static stability derivatives were
obtained. Expressions for the full and half conic bodies were given and
approximate expressions were given for the half cone case. The circular
cone results were obtained as a special case of the general results.
Comparisons of the theoretical calculations with experimental
results at hypersonic speeds were made of the aerodynamic coefficients
and static derivatives for several conic segments. Generally, good agreement was observed for specified ranges of fineness ratios and angles of
