Viscous flow simulation requirements
Abstract
Although significant advances have been made in the simulation of twodimensional compressible laminar viscous flows by numerically solving the compressible NavierStokes (N.S.) equations, problem areas still remain to be solved before viscous flows requiring solution of the compressible N.S. equations can be efficiently and accurately simulated for flows of aerodynamic interest. These problem areas include turbulence (threedimensional character), complex geometry, flow unsteadiness, placement of artificial boundaries relative to solid boundaries, specification of boundary conditions, and large flow gradients near surfaces and in the vicinity of shock waves for supersonic flows.
