Summary report on the working group for conference 3: Solutions of the full potential equations
Abstract
Application of potential theory to complicated 3D configurations for construction of computational grids; accelerated assessment using the multigrid method and accurate calculation of the compression shocks using the solutions of the Euler equations; and modification of potential theory for entropy and resistance study and for finer representation of shock discontinuity are discussed. Algorithm acceleration and economical design of optimal aerodynamic configurations completed with wind tunnel tests are described. The potential method is improved to calculate the external inviscid flow distribution using the NavierStokes equations. Viscosity effects are also studied.
