Abstract:

Modifications were made to two areas of the Mark IV Supersonic Arbitrary-Body program. First, the previous streamline method was replaced with one capable of tracing continuous surface streamlines. The method includes a means of locating the origins of the streamlines. Changes were also made to the viscous methods in the Mark IV code. The integral boundary layer methods, which must be applied along inviscid streamlines, were modified to ensure their compatibility with the new streamline method. Several discrepancies were observed in the previous coding of the integral methods, and the problems were corrected. Author
