Abstract : This report documents the research conducted under AFOSR Grant F4962O-92-J0488, 'Compressible Flow Turbulence Simulation and Modeling via Additive Turbulent Decomposition,' during the period 09/01/92-11/30/95. We begin by noting that four graduate students have been supported during the course of this grant: Mr. D. Denger, Ms. S. Flynn, Mr. E. C. Hylin and Mr. D. C. Weatherly. The first two chose to leave the project before the end of the first year; Ms. Flynn received her M.S. in Mechanical Engineering shortly thereafter, and Mr. Denger is expected to receive his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at least by the end of Summer 1996. Both of the remaining two students, Mr. Hylin and Mr. Weatherly, anticipate completing their Ph.D.s in Mechanical Engineering during the current semester, Spring '96. Thus, the grant will have aided, very crucially in the latter two cases, in producing four advanced engineering degrees. (AN)
