Abstract:

Experience obtained by the Computational Aerodynamics Group, WPAFB, in numerically solving viscous flow problems with the Navier-Stokes equations shall be addressed. Topics discussed include grid generation for arbitrary geometries, numerical instabilities, turbulence models, accuracy, efficiency, and smearing of discontinuities. Applications are reported for the method to solve shock wave-boundary layer interactions, 3D interactions, inlets and nozzle flow fields and unsteady viscous flows. Author
