Transonic flowfields about wing geometries are computed using an Euler/Navier-Stokes approach in which the flowfield is divided into several zones. Wind-tunnel wall effects are modeled easily and accurately with the new grid-zoning algorithm because the wind-tunnel grid is constructed as an exact subset of the corresponding free-air grid. Solutions are obtained that are in good agreement with experiment, including cases with significant wind-tunnel wall effects and shock-induced separation on the upper wing surface. © American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc., 1986.
