There are many important research results in computational modeling and analysis of transonic aerodynamics over the years. The development of a mixed finite difference algorithm by Murman and Cole, for example, solves the steady transonic small-disturbance equation and captures the embedded shock waves naturally. Since then, many extensions and improvements have been made. These include the studies of different models involving higher dimension, moist air, and combustion. Algorithm using approximate factorization technique, in particular, allows accurate and efficient solution for the unsteady transonic case and is useful in realistic aircraft design.
