Boundary Conditions for problems in aerodynamics

Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics book series (NONUFM, volume 3)

Abstract

In this paper we will discuss some recent results which are of importance when solving aerodynamic problems. We will consider three different situations where the correct treatment of the numerical boundary conditions is not obvious: down stream boundaries where part of the flow is subsonic, the Rankine-Huginot conditions at a shock, and the boundary conditions at a solid wall.
