The data included below represents the results obtained with the NSU3D
unstructured grid solver.
The test cases included a range of Mach numbers from 0.6 to 0.8, and a range of incidences for
each Mach number.
Results at these conditions were computed on 3 different grids with
the NSU3D solver:
A total of 72 steady-state solutions were run on the baseline
(1.6 million point) grid.
These cases were all run on the ICASE PC cluster CORAL
Each case requires about 3 Gbytes of memory and 3 hours of wall clock time using 32 cpus (800MHz Pentium III)
The total parametric study was completed in about 1 week on CORAL.
A total of 6 steady-state solutions were run on the fine (13 million
These cases were all run on LOMAX, the NAS SGI Origin 2000 system .
Each case requires about 27 Gbytes of memory and 4 hours of wall clock time using 128 cpus (400MHZ R12000)
The pictures above depict the baseline unstructured grid (1.6 millon
and a solution in terms of computed surface pressure contours.
A detailed description of these calculations is given below....
