    The design and development of a 9--14 seater Light Transport Aircraft (LTA), named SARAS, has been taken up at NAL recently. Reliable aerodynamic data is urgently13; required for this configuration, in order to freeze the design. A vertex based Euler code, JUEL3D, has been employed to compute inviscid flow past the SARAS wing-fuselage configuration. The algorithm uses a vertex based finite volume space discretization with a five stage Runge-Kutta time stepping scheme. Enthalpy damping, implicit residual smoothing, local time stepping and grid sequencing are used to accelerate the convergence to steady state. A blended second and fourth order artificial dissipation is also used for stability. The code is multi-block structured and can handle any arbitrary13; single/multi-body geometry. Computations have been carried out on a multi-block grid generated by the grid generation code, JUMGRID, which uses a hybrid algebraic/elliptic13; method to generate a structured grid in a particular block (whereas the blocks may be unstructured) and can be used for any arbitrary, geometrically complex body. Computed13; results are presented for subsonic flow at various angles of incidence and are compared with available experimental data.
