Recent Developlments to the viscous Garabedian and Korn method

Atkin, C.J. and Gowree, E.R. (2012). Recent Developlments to the viscous Garabedian and Korn method. Paper presented at the 28th Congress of the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences, 23-28 Sep 2012, Brisbane, Australia.

Abstract

This paper describes recent developments to the legacy VGK method based upon a new coupling with the Callisto boundary layer code developed for Airbus. The new CVGK method has been compared against its predecessor and validated against a transonic swept-wing dataset. Various conceptual studies have then been carried out to model the effect on form drag (viscous pressure drag) of changes to boundary layer entrainment and shock-control ramps. It is concluded that there are both risks to, and opportunities for, drag reduction techniques associated with managing the form drag contribution from the aft region of highly-loaded transonic aerofoils.
