A fourth-order accurate symmetry-preserving discretization for compressible flow is used to perform simulations of the turbulent flow over a delta wing. A symmetry-preserving discretization eliminates the non-linear convective instability by preserving conservation of kinetic energy at the discrete level. This enhances the stability of a simulation method, so that little artificial dissipation is needed for numerical stability. It is shown that simulations of the flow over a sharp-edge delta wing at Re = 50,000 with the symmetry-preserving discretization are stable without artificial dissipation in a region of interest around the delta wing. To assess the accuracy of the simulation method, results obtained on a fine computational grid are compared with results obtained on a coarser grid. Also results obtained with large-eddy simulation models and with sixth-order artificial dissipation are presented.
