Several applications of a Euler solver with the formulation of the flow equations in the noninertial reference system with steady and unsteady flow analysis are presented. The steady‐flow applications include determination of aerodynamic derivatives with respect to angular velocity and analysis of vortical flow over a delta wing at high angles of attack with the determination of aerodynamic coefficients and analysis of vortex breakdown. The unsteady flow analysis is applied in the simulation of a rapid manoeuvre for the determination of unsteady forces. The results of this simulation are compared with results of simulations using steady‐flow approximation in order to assess the advantages of unsteady flow analysis in the simulation of aircraft manoeuvres.
