Abstract : A state-of-the-art update has been performed into the aerodynamics of 3-D Aircraft Afterbodies. Particular attention has been paid to developments made in the computation techniques available to solve the complex flow physics generated at the nozzle/afterbody interface on geometries of realistic 3-D complexity. Results of computations performed on two selected sets of test cases are presented. Developments of experimental methods and empirical prediction techniques are also reviewed. Progress made since the last AGARD update (1986) are noted and recommendations made as to the required direction of future development efforts.
