Numerous computational fluid dynamics (CFD) codes are available that solve any of several variations of the transonic flow equations from small disturbance to full Navier-Stokes. Fort Worth Division involves use of all of these levels of codes, depending on the stage of configuration development. Throughout this process, drag calculation is a central issue. The design philosophy at General Dynamics This paper provides an overview of several transonic codes and presents representative test-to… CONTINUE READING
