A method is presented in this paper for determining the shape of the detached shock and flow field quantities in the supersonic entrance region on an arbitrary stream surface of revolution. The equation of characteristics and the corresponding equation of compatibility are derived. The shape of the detached shock obtained is taken as the initial-value curve to calculate the supersonic entrance region by means of the method of characteristics. Consequently, the unique inlet flow angle is also calculated. Typical computations show that this method is both effective and rapid.
