Abstract

This paper describes recent developments to the legacy VGK method based upon a new coupling with the Callisto boundary layer code developed for Airbus. The new CVGK method has been compared against its predecessor and validated against a transonic swept-wing dataset. Various conceptual studies have then been carried out to model the effect on form drag (viscous pressure drag) of changes to boundary layer entrainment and shock-control ramps. It is concluded that there are both risks to, and opportunities for, drag reduction techniques associated with managing the form drag contribution from the aft region of highly-loaded transonic aerofoils.
