The algorithm of numerical simulation of the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations in areas of complicated spatial form is briefly described. Results of calculation of the supersonic air flow around the hypersonic aircraft Waverider are given. Different methods for creating the complicated surface modelsof the advanced hypersonic flying vehicles X-43, Waverider, and X-51A are set forth.
