Subject: The Project is focused on the numerical analysis of transonic flow past an airfoil (wing section) with flat midportions. The aim of the work is to study the non-uniqueness and stability aspects of solutions to the system of the Euler equations governing inviscid compressible flow.
The numerical analysis will be performed with a flow solver based on high-resolution schemes, using fine computational meshes adapted to regions of strong flow gradients.
The Russian partner will provide the solver, formulate the problem, and participatein discussion of results. The Brazilian partner will prescribe a set of initial and boundary conditions, start running the solver on a PC, and analyze the solutions obtained.
The research will contribute to the comprehension of the physical nature of transonic flow instability, as well as to the development of advanced concepts for aircraft wing design. Results of the work will be discussed at the Department of Hydro-Aerodynamics of St Petersburg State University and at the International Institute for Advanced Aerospace Technologies (GUAP).
