Computational aspects of Transonic Small Perturbation (TSP) equation are studied. The TSP equation is a consistent approximation of comparable Euler Equations with the sole restriction of small perturbation. A new algorithm for solving conservative discretization of TSP equation is presented. Unconditional stability of the scheme was shown and a number of computational experiments were carried out which demonstrate the ruggedness of the scheme. Despite the TSP equation, though not valid near the blunt leading edge, a large number of calculations in the literature have been made for flow past airfoils like NACA 0012 using TSP equation. Handling of boundary13; condition in the numerical calculation tends to be ad-hoc near the leading edge. It is shown that if the leading edge slope is integrable a satisfactory analysis can be carried out. Numerical calculations confirm the usefullness of the approach. (Author)
