Boundarylayer and inverse potentialflow methods for axisymmetric bodies
Abstract
This report provides a description of two methods and their computer programs for calculating viscous and inviscid flows past axisymmetric bodies. The first is a boundarylayer method for both laminar and turbulent flows. The procedure embodies a finitedifference representation of the boundarylayer equations and uses an eddyviscosity model to represent turbulent flows. The second method is an inviscidflow procedure which obtains solutions to the potential equation by an orthogonal expansion procedure. The accuracy is equivalent to higherorder Neumann solutions, but at a considerable savings of computer time. This method can be used in either a direct or an inverse mode. Details of each method are presented and the use of the computer program is documented with various test cases.
