An Euler solution algorithm is presented for the computation of unsteady flows about manoeuvring aircraft. The algorithm employs an implicit multi-grid time march, coupled with an unstructured patched-interface procedure, to increase both efficiency and flexibility when applied to realistic configurations. Example Indicial-plunge functions are computed for a representative aircraft wing-tail geometry, using both patched and continuous meshes. The results illustrate the ability of the algorithm to capture vortex-flow interaction phenomena relevant to aircraft dynamic response.
