Abstract:

Mathematical and computational studies have been carried out on problems on theoretical aerodynamics. Shock free bodies and optimum critical airfoils have been considered in transonic theory, optimum three-dimensional lifting wings in hypersonic theory. Stability and transition of boundary layers has been analyzed according to triple deck theory. The Benjamin-Davis-Acrivos equation has been derived and it has been shown how solitons can lead to chaotic motion.
