A semi-similar solution of an unsteady hypersonic laminar compressible boundary layer flow over a slender axisymmetric body with massive blowing has been obtained when the free stream velocity varies arbitrarily with time. The governing partial differential equations have been solved numerically by combining the implicit finite difference scheme with the quasi-linearization technique. The results have been obtained for (i) an accelerating/decelerating stream and (ii) a fluctuating stream. The skin friction responds to the fluctuation in the free stream more compared to the heat transfer. It is observed that the effect of large injection (blowing) rates is to move the viscous boundary layer away from the surface. The effect of the variation of the density-viscosity product across the boundary layer is found to be negligible for large blowing rates. Massive blowing reduces significantly the values of skin friction and heat transfer but the effect of the transverse curvature parameter is just reverse. Location of the dividing streamline increases as injection rate increases, but decreases with the increase of the transverse curvature parameter.
