Focus, Particpants, & Dates


The focus of the workshop will be on assessing the accuracy of CFD in obtaining multi-stream air breathing system performance and flow structure to include nozzle force, vector and moment; nozzle thrust (Cv) and discharge (Cd) coefficients; and surface pressure prediction accuracy. Experimental data are available for the test cases; however, the CFD studies will be performed as a cheap ralph lauren shirts blind trial and compared with the experimental data during the PAW02 workshop.

Models will be provided for multiple cases featuring isolated inlets, isolated nozzles, and nozzles with or without a ground plane. A statistical framework will be used to assess the CFD results.

Baseline computational grids will be provided for structured solvers. However, geometry will also be available to those interested in developing their own meshes or employing an best replica breitling unstructured grid. Participants may run one or more cases if the required example grid solution is completed.

The workshop provides an impartial forum to present findings, discuss results, exchange ideas, and evaluate the effectiveness of existing computer codes and modeling techniques.
