Van der Westhuysen, A.J. (author), Van Vledder, G.P. (author)The spectral wind wave model SWAN plays a key role in the estimation of the Hydraulic Boundary Conditions (HBC) for the primary sea defences of the Netherlands. Since some uncertainty remains with respect to the reliability of SWAN for application to the geographically complex area of the Wadden Sea, a number of activities have been initiated...report 2007

Vogels, M.E.S. (author)For flow simulation around (parts of) aerospace vehicles, aerospace industry needs CFD software. For users in industry, not only the functionality of the software is relevant. Timely availability and cost of the first version and later versions are other relevant factors. These factors are represented in the software characteristics timeliness,...report 1997

van der Burg, J.W. (author), Maseland, J.E.J. (author), Hagmeijer, R. (author), de Cock, K.M.J. (author)In this paper the capabilities of an automated CFD system which is currently available at NLR are demonstrated. Transonic flow around the AS28G wing/body configuration and hypersonic flow through a generic threedimensional mixedcompression airbreathing inlet are simulated. An assessment of the level of automation of the current CFDsystem is...report 1995

Geschiers, J.P. (author)SOLEQS is a sequential threedimensional multiblock multizone compressible NavierStokes solver, produced by NLR. In this paper is described how this largescale application code in the order of 120,000 lines can be parallelized towards different computing platforms in a structured and manageable way. This paralellization is done stepwise,...report 1994

Hoeijmakers, H.W.M. (author)An analysis is presented of results of a computational method to simulate the steady compressible vortical type of flow around a 65deg sharpedged cropped delta wing. The discussion emphasizes some more fundamental aspects of the numerical simulation such as the separation of the flow, the structure of the leadingedge vortex core and the flow...report 1991

Hounjet, M.H.L. (author)A method is presented for the generation of 0type grids about transverse crosssections of transport type aircraft. The method combines a hyperbolic grid generation scheme with source terms obtained with a boundary element method in such a way that 0type grids around fairly complex shapes with concavities can be generated easily. The...report 1990

van der Vooren, J. (author), van der Wees, A.J. (author)The mathematical background is described of a method that is currently being developed at NLR to calculated wave drag in transonic potential flow. The method is a generalization and extension of Garabedian's and McFadden's idea of determining wave drag by volumeintegration of the artificial viscosity. The generalization of Garabedian's and...report 1990

Schippers, H. (author)A description is given of TULIPS  a method for Transonic Unsteady Lifting Inviscid Potentialflow Simulation. The Mathematical formulation and the numerical approach are presented for flow about oscillating airfoils. TULIPS is based on the numerical integration of the unsteady fullpotential equation in generalized coordinates. The equation is...report 1988

Buijsen, F.A. (author), Kassies, A. (author), Boerstoel, J.W. (author)The results of calculations of two and threedimensional flows on blocked grid domains consist of vast data collections with a simple, regular structure. The inspection of these results can only be done efficiently by graphical means, and by exploiting the regular structure of the data. There is a large similarity between the format of the...report 1988

Lof, C.J. (author)Computer programs are described to be used for fracture control purposes. Crack growth lifetimes can be predicted for plane cracks in 3D structures. Values for stress intensity (K) distributions at crack fronts are derived from data being available from literature for a restricted number of simple configurations. For arbitrary configurations...report 1986

Boerstoel, J.W. (author)An analysis of various alternative approaches in grid generation is presented. A gridgeneration procedure for complex aircraft configurations could be based on a combination of three subprocesses, . decomposition of the flow domain into about 100 hexahedronal blocks, . trilineair transfinite interpolation to generate initial grid point...report 1986

Veldman, A.E.P. (author), Vogels, M.E.S. (author)A mathematical model is presented for the description of axisymmetric threedimensional transient flow of a viscous liquid in a partially filled cylindrical container under low gravity conditions. The mathematical model consists of the NavierStokes equations with either noslip condition at the solid boundaries, and with the continuity of...report 1986

Hoogendoorn, R.A. (author)Computations in numerical fluid dynamics create large sets of data. Transmission of these datasets requires a high speed communication link or, alternatively, the use of data compression techniques. This report describes the results of a study to the applicability of data compression techniques. An algorithm is designed that yields favourable...report 1986

de Bruin, A.C. (author)The three dimensional flow field around delta wings with leadingedge vortex flow can be computed with panel methods. However, secondary flow separation may occur on the leeward surface of the wing. The associated free vortex sheet can be modeled in the potential flow calculation method, if the location of the secondary separation is provided by...report 1983

Boerstoel, J.W. (author)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...report 1983
