A description is given of the method CAR88 for the calculation of steady and time-linearized unsteady subsonic and supersonic flow about complex 2-D and 3-D configurations. The method belongs to the category of the socalled panel methods. Results of applications in supersonic flow are shown which have been made to a 2-D oscillating flat plate, a...

An interactive computer program system has been developed that can be used in aircraft drag minimization studies. It comprises algorithms for choosing the spanwise distributions of lift, pitching moment, chord and thicknessto-chord ratio of lifting elements. The choices are optimal in that they minimize induced plus viscous drag while satisfying...

van Beek, C.M. (author)
The application of a boundary integral or "panel" method to duct flows is described. The method is capable of computing the three dimensional, steady state, subsonic, linearized (Prandtl-Glauert) potential flow about general configurations. The method is characterized by the application of a Dirichlet boundary condition and of "compressible"...

Slooff, J.W. (author)
An overview is provided of computational methods that can be used in solving the design problem of aerodynamics; i.e. the problem of finding the detailed shape of (parts of) configurations of which the gross geometric characteristics have already been determined in a preliminary, overall design process, and that, subject to certain constraints,...

A survey of numerical methods for the calculation of inviscid Euler flows is presented. This survey has been prepared for AGAKD FDP WGOT: "Test cases for steady inviscid transonic or supersonic flows". The survey is augmented by a short assessment of the usefulness of the methods. For aerodynamic applications, the existing methods are in a...

At NLR a system for the computational design on multi-element airfoil has been developed. This design system solves the inverse aerodynamic problem in an approximate way. A priori specified aerodynamic requirements (surface pressure distribution) and geometric requirements are minimized in a least-squares way, introducing weight factors to...

van den Dam, R.F. (author)
An interactive computer program system has been developed which provides induced-drag analysis, optimization and configuration-design capabilities. The program system employs subsonic far-field (Trefftzplane) analysis, and novel mathematical formulations of the constrained optimization problems which are based on calculus of variations. The...

The design and experimental verification of a thick (18 %), shock free airfoil is described. The design was performed, using the NLR hodograph theory for transonic airfoil design. The airfoil was experimentally investigated in the NLR Pilot tunnel.

Boersen, S.J. (author)
Pressure measurements have been carried out on 5 stations along a 7.5- caliber conically pointed circular cylinder at a Mach number of 2.3 and Reynolds numbers of 1.2; 4.8 and 11.1 x 106. Pressure distributions have been integrated to produce local normal force coefficients. Some pitot pressure surveys have been performed in the external flow...
