IGES Geometry Files:

The following IGES geometry files are based on measured deployed coordinates, and also include a relevant y-direction shift as detailed in the figure below. All grids are to be constructed using these particular files.

Note that there were several minor differences in the defined flap position during the course of the testing campaign (discussed in more detail in AIAA Paper 2011-862). The position used here was from 2002 Quality Assurance (QA) data. This position differs slightly from the original 1998/1999 geometry definition.

(The above IGES geometry files have been read successfully in the following third-party CAD packages and grid generation tools: CATIA V5, VGRID/Gridtool V4.0, ICEMCFD V11.0, Star-CCM+ V4.02, and Gridgen V15.13.)


ProE Geometry Files:

The geometry files are also available as ProE files (Configuration 1 only). Note, however, that the brackets are surfaces, not solid models.


Note: HiLiftPW participants are required to run on one of the provided grids if possible. Participants are also welcome to create their own grids, but they must be uploaded to the HiLiftPW Committee.
