Abstract : The present report discusses the development of a time-dependent Navier-Stokes code for use in predicting transonic shock-wave boundary layer interaction. In addition, various test cases which have been performed are discussed. The algorithm used to solve the equations is based upon the consistently split linearized block implicit method of Briley and McDonald (15, 16). The philosophy and use of a solution adaptive mesh is also described. The test cases studied in this report are: normal shock wave boundary layer interaction in a constant area circular pipe, steady transonic flow over an axisymmetric bump, unsteady flow over an axisymmetric bump, supersonic flow over an axisymmetric compression corner and oblique shock wave impingement on a flat plate boundary layer.
