NEAR FIELD TURBULENT WAKE PREDICTIONS

Numerical models using the parabolic form of the Navier-Stokes equations have some limitations when used to model near field turbulent wakes of self-propelled bodies. A variant method that accounts for the complex initial pressure field equations essential to the downstream prediction of these wakes is proposed.
