The free streamline theory has been used for evaluation of the cavity drag of symmetrical wedges of arbitrary angle. The required conformal transformation is derived explicitly. This calculation is an extension of Riabouchinsky's theory of the cavity drag of a flat plate. As an approximation, the pressure distribution for a two-dimensional wedge is used to calculate the cavity drag of the corresponding cone of revolution. A comparison of the result of this approximation with experimental measurements made by Reichardt shows good agreement.
