This part deals with the calculation of the flow within the attached boundary layer and the wake of a body of revolution and its interaction with the external potential flow which was treated in Part 1. The iterative technique described in Part 1 is used to obtain a complete solution to the flow in the neighborhood of the tail of the body. The results of the calculations are compared with two sets of experimental data and reasonable agreement is demonstrated.
