The problem of describing the boundary layer existing inside a conical surface due to the presence of a swirling flow passing through the cone is considered. Approximate solutions based upon the Karman-Polhausen method are obtained for both the laminar and the turbulent cases. The results obtained are in close agreement with known solutions previously obtained in the limits of swirl with no throughflow and throughflow with no swirl. The present results appear to be valid over the entire range of swirl to throughflow ratios.
