Solution Method for Viscous Flows at all Speeds in Complex Domains
An existing numerical method for the solution of laminar and turbulent incompressible flows in complex geometries is extended to the calculation of steady compressible flows. As a result a method is obtained which is equally valid for both incompressible and compressible flows, including transonic and supersonic regimes. The method is verified on a number of test cases, including inviscid and viscous both internal and external flows. The overall performance of the method may be considered good, except for the smearing of the shocks, which is the consequence of the curently emoployed first order differencing scheme. As an illustration of the capabilities of the method it is applied to the prediction of the flow around a projectile with and without base bleed.
