    Abstract

    A code based on the cell-centered explicit finite volume method with Runge-Kutta time13; stepping scheme and acceleration techniques like local time-stepping, implicit residual13; smoothing and multigrid has been used to estimate the . shock-induced buffet onset of13; NACA 0012 airfoil. Such methods are basically meant to compute steady flows. The flow,13; with shock-induced oscillations isc;'totally unsteady phenomenon and its detailed study13; must be made using time-accurate computations. However, if the purpose is just to13; estimate the shock-induced buffet onset, like the information that the aerodynamic design13; engineer may desire to get, it may be enough to estimate the buffet onset boundary13; without getting into the details of its time-accurate nature. This estimation is obtained in a far too lesser computational time as the code is highly accelerated. Estimate of an13; important aerodynamic parameter such as this, obtained so quickly, is of great help to the13; aerodynamic engineer. The justification to use a steady state code to compute an13; unsteady flow phenomenon is that a basically unsteady flow will remain unsteady and its nature is not altered by using steady state method. The basic information related to the13; time accurate history will, of course, not be available.
