Computers have had a twofold impact on the science of aerodynamics. On the one hand numerical simulation may be used to gain new insights into the physics of complex flows. On the other hand computational methods can be used by engineers to predict the aerodynamic characteristics of alternative designs. Assuming that one has the ability to predict the(More)
A crucial input to the design of a long range aircraft is the prediction of the aerodynamic flow in cruising flight. In contrast to the flow past a blunt object, such as a golf ball, or ski racer, the flow past an aircraft generally does not separate. Consequently, the important viscous effects are mainly confined to boundary layers over the surface of the(More)
The effect of artificial diffusion on discrete shock structures is examined for a family of schemes which includes scalar diffusion, convective upwind and split pressure (CUSP) schemes, and upwind schemes with characteristic splitting. The analysis leads to conditions on the diffusive flux such that stationary discrete shocks can contain a single interior(More)
The theory of non-oscillatory scalar schemes is developed in this paper in terms of the local extremum diminishing (LED) principle that maxima should not increase and minima should not decrease. This principle can be used for multi-dimensional problems on both structured and unstructured meshes, while it is equivalent to the total variation diminishing(More)
An aerodynamic shape optimization method that treats the design of complex aircraft configurations subject to high fidelity computational fluid dynamics (CFD), geometric constraints and multiple design points is described. The design process will be greatly accelerated through the use of both control theory and distributed memory computer architectures.(More)
