Abstract
A computer program which numerically solves the steady incompressible Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations in two dimensions has been modified and extended. The boundary conditions have been improved and generalized for different grid topologies. The turbulence modeling has also been generalized and a new turbulence model, the Spalart-Allmaras model, has been added. Finally, an alternative matrix solver, GMRES, has been implemented in an effort to accelerate the convergence of the code.
