Numerical simulation for external subsonic unsteady flow around an axisymmetric model is presented in this paper. The simulation uses a quasi-gas-dynamic algorithm implemented on an unstructured tetrahedral grid. A turbulator in the annular flap shape is allocated on the model surface: it sets the position of a laminar-turbulent transition. The problem statement corresponds to experiments for this model placed in a wind tunnel. The overall flow pattern, the distribution of the pressure coefficient on the surface, and the turbulent pulsation parameters demonstrate high qualitative and quantitative agreement with the experimental data.
