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 attack.
