Abstract : Research is reported in an effort to fill the need for accurate unsteady transonic aerodynamics for use in flutter calculation. The paper describes five different approaches to the transonic unsteady flow problem. These methods each attempt to take into account the nonconstant Mach number characteristic of transonic flow, some more accurately than others. Viscous effects are not included.
