Computational Results for 2-D and 3-D Ramp Flows with an Upwind Navier-Stokes Solver

  • Ethiraj Venkatapathy


An implicit, finite-difference, upwind, full Navier-Stokes solver has been applied to supersonic/hypersonic flows over two-dimensional ramps and three-dimensional obstacle (Problem sets 3 and 4). Some of the computed numerical results are presented here.
