Abstract : The overall objective of the research carried out over the last two years was the development of new algorithms for the efficient simulation of viscous compressible flows with moving bodies in three dimensions using unstructured grids. The development was based on current 3D Euler/Navier-Stokes capabilities, and encompassed flow solvers, grid generation and the efficient use of emerging supercomputer hardware. The research carried out over the last three years significantly advanced the state of the art in this area of CFD. The particular topics are treated below in detail.
