Numerical simulation of the three dimensional flow past 6 : 1 prolate spheroid at Alpha = 20 Deg and Re = 4.2 × 106 using RANS approach has been carried out using the parallel version of the in-house structured grid multiblock flow solution code 3D-PURLES. The SST turbulence model is used to simulate the fully turbulent case and this model is suitably modified to handle transitional flows by fixing the onset of transition. The results thus obtained are validated against the available measurement and/or computational data.
