Abstract:

A numerical solution of the laminar, steady near wake of an axisymmetric body in supersonic flow is developed. The body considered is a spherically capped cylinder with a truncated base. The full set of compressible partial differential equations are solved. The numerical approach is a two-step time dependent finite difference procedure similar to that used by Cheng and Allen in two-dimensions. The scheme is the elimination of the viscosity dependent stability condition for the time dependent solution.
