Calculation Methods for Aerodynamic Flows—a Review

  • Tuncer Cebeci
  • J. H. Whitelaw


The present volume has been arranged so as to emphasize present abilities to calculate flows involving three independent variables and, at the same time to provide a background of the two-dimensional approaches upon which they are based. In the earlier review by Cebeci, Stewartson, and Whitelaw [1], two-dimensional flows were considered in some detail, and the corresponding volume included 22 papers which described related calculation methods and their achievements. Thus, the following section makes clear the background of advances which have been made since the Symposium of [1], and Sections 3 and 4 review the present status of unsteady three-dimensional methods. In each section new results are reported where they help to clarify the abilities of calculation methods.
