The paper describes the results obtained from a multigrid accelerated Navier-Stokes solver. The method is based on 2-D explicit cell-centred finite volume Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (N-S) flow solver for speeds from near-incompressible Mach numbers to high hypersonic Mach numbers including flows at high angles of attack. The time integration is done using a hybrid 5-stage Runge-Kutta local time stepping scheme. With the help of a simple technique, the capability of the Jameson-Schmidt-Turkel numerical dissipation scheme has been enhanced to include hypersonic flows. The iterative procedure is accelerated significantly by incorporating a multigrid technique which has been used in all computations up to about supersonic speeds. Systematic numerical experiments were conducted to evolve guidelines to generate airfoil grid that could offer reliable flow simulations. The computed results are in very good agreement with experimental data where available, especially from the point of view of predicting large suction peaks and shock locations where considerable departures are often seen in the literature. Further, the highly accelerated computations make this code a useful tool of practical interest in preliminary aerodynamic design.13;
