Abstract:

The governing equations for laminar, transitional andor turbulent, incompressible, three-dimensional boundary layers are solved numerically. The equations are developed in terms of an orthogonal surface coordinate system and include surface curvature effects. The coordinates are generated numerically, while the inviscid flow is obtained from a general potential flow procedure. The only restrictions on body geometry are that it possess a blunt nose and a plane of symmetry. The boundary-layer equations, after being transformed into similarity type variables, are solved using the implicity finite-difference Krause scheme. Various test cases are presented to establish the accuracy of the resulting computer program. Author
