A vertex based finite volume method for the solution of the three dimensional Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations has been developed. The computation can be carried out block-wise after dividing the computational domain into smaller blocks to reduce the memory requirements for a single processor computer and also to facilitate parallel computing. A five stage Runge-Kutta scheme has been used to advance the solution in time. Enthalpy damping, implicit residual smoothing, local time stepping, and grid sequencing are used for convergence acceleration. In order to get smooth convergence for transonic, viscous flows, the artificial dissipation has been modified by using time step for advective and diffusive equations. An algebraic turbulence model has been used to determine the turbulent eddy viscosity. The method has been used to compute transonic flow over a cropped delta wing and the ONERA M-6 wing and subsonic flow over a launch vehicle configuration. The results obtained show good agreement with available experimental data.
