Numerical radiation boundary conditions for unsteady transonic flow

Bjorn Engquist, Andrew Majda

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A family of numerical boundary conditions for far-field-computational boundaries in calculations involving unsteady transonic flow is devised. These boundary conditions are developed in a systematic fashion from general principles. Both numerical and analytic comparisons with other currently used methods are given.
