A method of solution is presented for compressible fluid flow past an elliptic cylinder by means of the variational method. The solution is obtained as a function of thickness ratio and free-stream Mach number. Numerical examples are carried out for several thickness ratios and Mach numbers and the results are compared with those obtained by other methods.
