Abstract:

This paper presents the development of a finite difference form of the unsteady boundary layer equations for two dimensional flow. The equations are written in body-conformal coordinates, non-dimensionalized, transformed to a generalized curvilinear coordinate system, and expanded to yield equations suitable for use in a tridiagonal solver. The boundary conditions are also presented.
