Abstract : This report documents efforts, to date, in the transition of the Mississippi State University (MSU), incompressible Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes code (UNCLE). The code is evaluated through replication of previous cases documented by MSU and computation of new cases that include more realistic geometries. A grid-sensitivity study is performed, in which a series of grid types and grid distributions is examined. Comparisons of the computed results with measured data for two submarine hulls are presented.
