AIAA CFD Transition Modeling DG

The AIAA CFD Transition Modeling Discussion Group will organize the first AIAA Transition Modeling and Prediction Workshop on 13-14 June 2020, in conjunction with the AIAA AVIATION Forum in Reno, NV. All stakeholders are cordially invited to be a part of the workshop, which aims to:

  • Assess the current state of the art in laminar-turbulent transition prediction in an industrial CFD environment
  • Determine and document the best practices for transitional flow simulations
  • Verify transition and turbulence model implementations, and 
  • Encourage risk-taking by participants, and to promote improvements to CFD prediction capabilities

This workshop is modeled after the AIAA Drag Prediction Workshop (DPW) and High-Lift Prediction Workshop (HiLiftPW) series. The primary test case will be the natural-laminar-flow variant of the Common Research Model (CRM-NLF) developed by NASA, and additional verification cases will be studied as well.  A full description of all test cases, along with additional details of this workshop are available here.
