Abstract

Newton’s method for steady laminar flows over aerofoils is examined as a prelude to the study of more demanding unsteady flows. A simple and fast method for approximating the Jacobian is proposed and various conjugate gradient techniques are evaluated for the solution of the linear system. Rapid convergence is demonstrated on two test cases.
