Abstract : A new method of numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is applied to time-dependent flow about a rectangular slab at an angle of attack. With this formulation the solition is obtained in the entire unbounded flow field, but with actual computation required only in regions of significant vorticity. This allows considerable reduction in computer storage, since only points in regions of signficant vorticity need be stored at any particular time. The computational field thus expands in time.
