A 3-D Thin Layer Navier-Stokes (TLNS) code for solving viscous supersonic flows is developed. The new code uses several numerical algorithms for space and time discretization together with appropriate turbulence modeling. Roe’s method is used for discretizing the convective terms and the central differencing scheme is employed for the viscous terms. An explicit time marching technique and a finite volume space discretization are used. The developed computational model can handle both laminar and turbulent flows. The Baldwin-Lomax model and Degani-Schiff modifications are used for turbulence modeling. The computational model is applied to a hypersonic laminar flow at Mach 7.95 around a cone at different incidence angles. The circumferential pressure distribution is compared with the experimental data. The cross-sectional Mach number contours are also presented. It is shown that in addition to the outer shock, a cross-flow shock wave is also present in the flow field. The cases of supersonic turbulent flows with Mach number 3 around a tangent-ogive with incidence angles of 6° and a secant-ogive with incidence angles of 10° are also studied. The circumferential pressure distributions are compared with the experimental data and the Euler code results and good agreement is obtained. The cross-sectional Mach number contours are also presented. It is shown that in this case also in addition to the outer shock, a cross-flow shock wave is also present at the incidence angle of 10°.
