Abstract

The three dimensional, compressible Navier-Stokes equations were solved numerically in order to predict the details of transonic flow over a rigid Wing-C configuration. The Baldwin-Lomax and Johnson-King models were used for modeling turbulence. The agreement between the numerical predictions and test data is found to be quite good. Nomenclature D = damping factor e = total energy per unit volune J = Jacobian transformation k = turbulent kinetic energy M = Mach number p — pressure / = time u, v, w = components of velocity x, y, z = cartesian coordinates £, r|, £ = transformed coordinates
