An integral prediction method for threedimensional turbulent compressible boundary layers
Abstract
The considered method is based on an approach reported by Smith (1973). The method makes use of a system of curvilinear nonorthogonal coordinates. The bicubic spline interpolation procedure described by Smith and Gaffney (1972) is used to evaluate the metric tensor of the surfaces. A system of hyperbolic differential equations is obtained. The system is solved with the aid of a simple explicit finite difference scheme.
