Fast Viscous Correction Method for Full-Potential Transonic Wing Analysis
An analysis of the transonic flowfield around a three-dimensional wing is carried out using a strip method. Attention is given to the boundary layer growth in the streamwise direction. A viscous correction technique is defined for the TWING code for solving the full potential equations. A viscous ramp at the base of a shock is superimposed on the boundary layer displacement thickness generated by an integral boundary layer method. A relationship is then obtained between the effective displacement thickness and a vertical component of the surface velocity, a transpirational boundary condition. The viscous correction is found to be unnecessary in weak shock conditions but gives a better shock position and pressure distribution in a strong shock condition when compared with data from an ONERA M6 airfoil and the Hinson and Burdges (1980) Wing A.
