This paper outlines the aerodynamics of the hypersonic waverider model which was designed by inviscid conical flowfield. Computational study was performed using method for splitting into physical processes which was implemented into UST3D computer code. The comparison between experimental data and calculations is presented. Assuming that flow about waverider is turbulent the effects of viscous interaction are taken into account by reference temperature method. Calculations were conducted using unstructured tetrahedron mesh
