Abstract:

Methods for computing numerically the flow past blunted bodies of revolution travelling at supersonic speeds and at angles of attack are developed, using finite difference schemes. Results are shown for a given configuration at two supersonic Mach Numbers for which circumferential pressure distribution is given as well as the lift slope coefficient. To achieve greater computational efficiency a different method was introduced - one based on mapping the body into a line in the 2-D case or a rectangle. This was tested so far on the axisymmetric case. Author
