Turbulent compressible flow past an asymmetric trailing edge has been computed using the generalised-coordinate time-split group finite-element method and a lagged algebraic eddy viscosity turbulence model. The test case considered is that of a flow at a nominal Mach number of 0.4 and a Reynolds number of 26.2×106. Mean velocity profiles and the displacement thickness distribution are in good agreement with the experimental results. The pressure and surface shear stress indicate reasonable agreement with the experimental results, except near the shoulder on the upper surface.
