    Abstract

    This Note covers attempts to extend an existing two dimensional transonic code, TRADE 1, in Cartesian coordinates to three-dimensions. The scope of the investigation is to see if a code eould be developed using Cartesian coordinates, instead of the more involved body-fitting coordinates, so that the incorporation of a fuselage in the code developed for the case of wing-alone becomes straight forward. The preliminary studies show encouraging results, but also bring into focus areas in flow field where more needs to be done for a good resolution of the flow details-particularly for swept, tapered wings.
