The axisymmetric-supersonic theory of Taylor and Maccoll (T-M) is studied and extended to verify its application in different cases. First, a study of the quality of the analytical approximation developed by Ishimatu and Morishita is performed by comparing the Mach field along the entire shock wave spectrum. Then, an extension to the T-M theory is performed to obtain the fluid properties along a cone with two different slopes, with a set of three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of the doublecone systems employed to validate the extension of the theory proposed.
