- Numerical techniques that improve the accuracy and stability of algorithms for the small disturbance and full potential equations used to calculate transonic flows are described. For the small disturbance equation, the algorithm improvements are: (1) the use of monotone switches in the type dependent finite differencing, and (2) the use of stable and simple second order accurate spatial differencing; these improvements are for steady and unsteady transonic flows. For the steady full potential equation, the improvement is in the use of a monotone switch in the type dependent finite differencing of an approximate factorization (AF2) algorithm. All these improvements are implemented in present computer codes by making minor coding modifications.
