An upwind-biased implicit scheme is used to investigate steady-state and unsteady Navier-Stokes solutions of the vortical flow over a double-delta wing configuration. The governing equations are solved numerically with a fully upwind, implicit, iterative, and factorized numerical scheme. Steady-state solutions for fixed angles of attack and unsteady solutions for a sinusoidal oscillatory motion are obtained. The steady-state solutions on the baseline grid are in agreement with the experiment, and grid refinements show some improvements of the predictions. The higher-order accuracy of the present scheme yields equivalent solutions on smaller grid densities compared to solutions obtained with a second-order accurate method on larger grids. As the angle of attack increases, the grid resolution requirements for adequate resolution of the leeward-side vortical flowfield become very severe. The unsteady solutions are in general agreement with the measurements and show a qualitative correlation with the experiment.
