Flow over tail and in wake of axisymmetric bodies: review of the state of the art. Academic Article uri icon


  • The many methods that have been proposed over the past decade for the calculation of unseparated axisymmetric flow over the tail of a body of revolution are reviewed and the results of a recently developed method are presented and discussed in detail to assess the state of the art. It is shown that some computational techniques have advanced to a stage where quite accurate solutions can be obtained for such flows. (A)
