Computation of three-dimensional transonic viscous flow using the JUMBO3D code. (English) Zbl 0883.76064

The authors report computational results obtained with a vertex-based finite-volume method for solving the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes-equations for three-dimensional flows. Standard solution elements are used for the construction of the solution. The flow fields computed include the flow past a \(65^\circ\) swept cropped delta wing at transonic speeds, the flow past the ONERA M6 wing, and the flow past a multi-body launch vehicle configuration. Compared are the surface pressure distributions which show fair to good agreement with experimental data.
