Abstract:

A previous effort AD-A053 254 in the prediction of body temperature distributions to stabilize the boundary layer flow has resulted in a methodology for doing this. Recently it was found that the number of parameters could be reduced by one by means of an affine transformation. The previous method has thus been simplified. In addition, the numerical computational method was changed to one based on Kellers box method. This has permitted greater accuracy and stability in certain computational regions. This memorandum reports on this more simple method and again presents information on laminar separation and transition.
