Abstract : Research covers computational studies to explicate the fundamental physical mechanisms of unsteady viscous propulsor hydrodynamics: development of methods for obtaining time-accurate Navier- Stokes and Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes solutions for flows involving fixed and moving boundaries and separation; determination of appropriate time and length scales for such flows; and investigations of the interaction between natural and forced unsteady flows.
