    Description: A three-dimensional solution-adaptive-grid scheme is described which is suitable for complex fluid flows. This method, using tension and torsion spring analogies, was previously developed and successfully applied for two-dimensional flows. In the present work, a collection of three-dimensional flow fields are used to demonstrate the feasibility and versatility of this concept to include an added dimension. Flow fields considered include: (1) supersonic flow past an aerodynamic afterbody with a propulsive jet at incidence to the free stream, (2) supersonic flow past a blunt fin mounted on a solid wall, and (3) supersonic flow over a bump. In addition to generating three-dimensional solution-adapted grids, the method can also be used effectively as an initial grid generator. The utility of the method lies in: (1) optimum distribution of discrete grid points, (2) improvement of accuracy, (3) improved computational efficiency, (4) minimization of data base sizes, and (5) simplified three-dimensional grid generation.

    Description: The strongly interactive flow field about aircraft afterbodies is investigated using computational techniques by which the thin-shear-layer formulation of the compressible, Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations is solved. A time-dependent implicit numerical algorithm is used to obtain solutions for a variety of afterbody and nozzle geometries, within the class of bodies of revolution, for both subsonic and supersonic external flow, and for sonic and supersonic underexpanded jets. Only centered nozzles with either a sharp lip or a blunt base are considered. In all cases, computed results are compared with experimental data taken at flight Reynolds numbers for like-flow conditions. Turbulence closure is realized using algebraic eddy-viscosity concepts. A new and unique adaptive-grid technique is used to resolve flow regimes with large gradients and to improve the accuracy and efficiency of the computational scheme. Special singular point boundary conditions are used for similar purposes, and are especially effective for highly under-expanded jets. For all cases considered, except one with a very large base-to-nozzle-exit-diameter ratio, the agreement with experimental measurements is excellent. For geometries with large base regions, enhancements in the turbulence transport model are necessary to support improvements in the flow-field simulation.

    Description: A directional-split, modular, user-friendly grid point distribution code is applied to several test problems. The code is self-adaptive in the sense that grid point spacing is determined by user-specified constants denoting maximum and minimum grid spacings and constants relating the relative influence of smoothness and orthogonality. Estimates of truncation error, in terms of flow-field gradients and/or geometric features, are used to determine the point distribution. Points are redistributed along grid lines in a specified direction in an elliptic manner over a user-specified subdomain, while orthogonality and smoothness are controlled in a parabolic (marching) manner in the remaining directions. Multidirectional adaption is achieved by sequential application of the method in each coordinate direction. The flow-field solution is redistributed onto the newly distributed grid points after each unidirectional adaption by a simple one-dimensional interpolation scheme. For time-accurate schemes such interpolation is not necessary and time-dependent metrics are carried in the fluid dynamic equations to account for grid movement.

    Description: A practical solution, adaptive-grid method utilizing a tension and torsion spring analogy is proposed for multidimensional fluid flow problems. The tension spring, which connects adjacent grid points to each other, controls grid spacings. The torsion spring, which is attached to each grid node, controls inclinations of coordinate lines and grid skewness. A marching procedure was used that results in a simple tridiagonal system of equations at each coordinate line to determine grid-point distribution. Multidirectional adaptation is achieved by successive applications of one-dimensional adaptation. Examples of applications for axisymmetric afterbody flow fields and two dimensional transonic airfoil flow fields are shown.

    Description: Computed solutions of the time-dependent, Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations for three dimensional flows having thin shear layers are analyzed using topological concepts. Specific examples include the transonic flow over a body of revolution with conical afterbody at moderate angles of incidence to the free stream. Experimental flow-visualization techniques are simulated graphically to visualize the computed flow. Scalar and vector fluid dynamics properties such as pressure, shear stress, and vorticity on the body surface are presented as topological maps, and their relationship to one another in terms of orientation and singular points is discussed. The extrapolation from these surface topologies toward the understanding of external flow-field behavior is and demonstrated.

    Description: The patched mesh CSCM flow solver is used with a fast adaptive grid technique to compute complex two dimensional and axisymmetric, inviscid and viscous flows accurately and efficiently. The patched grid technique allows the user to generate the initial grid around complex regions with minimal effort. The adaptive grid strategy permits the grid points to adjust to the solution in accordance with the flow structure and user specified grid constraints and thus improve the accuracy of the solution. Solutions to challenging flow problems are obtained with adapted grids and the numerical examples and the results presented here show clearly the effectiveness of the adaptive grid solution strategy to obtain highly accurate numerical solutions with minimal human effort and computational resources.

    Description: The supersonic flow field over a body of revolution incident to the free stream is simulated numerically on a large, array processor (the CDC CYBER 205). The configuration is composed of a cone-cylinder forebody followed by a conical afterbody from which emanates a centered, supersonic propulsive jet. The free-stream Mach number is 2, the jet-exist Mach number is 2.5, and the jet-to-free-stream static pressure ratio is 3. Both the external flow and the exhaust are ideal air at a common total temperature.

    Description: A code developed for simulating high Reynolds number transonic flow fields of arbitrary configuration is described. This code, in conjunction with laboratory experiments, is used to devise and test turbulence transport models which may be suitable in the prediction of such flow fields, with particular emphasis on regions of flow separation. The solutions describe the flow field, including both the shock-induced and trailing-edge separation regions, in sufficient detail to provide the profile and friction drag.

    Description: The supersonic flow field over a body of revolution incident to the free stream is simulated numerically on a large, array processor (the CDC Cyber 205). The configuration is composed of a cone-cylinder forebody followed by a conical afterbody from which emanates a centered, supersonic propulsive jet. The free-stream Mach number is 2, the jet-exit Mach number is 2.5, and the jet-to-free-stream static pressure ratio is 3. Both the external flow and the exhaust are ideal air at a common total temperature. The thin-layer approximation to the time-dependent, compressible, Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations are solved using an implicit finite-difference algorithm. The data base, of 5 million words, is structured in a 'pencil' format so that efficient use of the array processor can be realized. The computer code is completely vectorized to take advantage of the data structure. Turbulence closure is achieved using an empirical algebraic eddy-viscosity model. The configuration and flow conditions correspond to published experimental tests and the computed solutions are consistent with the experimental data.
