AIAA CFD High Lift Prediction Workshop (HiLiftPW-3)
by the AIAA Applied Aerodynamics Technical Committee
Associated with the
AIAA Aviation and Aeronautics Forum and Exposition
Denver, Colorado, USA
3-4 June 2017
- Assess the numerical prediction capability (meshing, numerics, turbulence
modeling, high-performance computing requirements, etc.) of current-generation CFD
technology/codes for swept, medium-to-high-aspect ratio wings for landing/take-off
- Develop practical modeling guidelines for CFD prediction of high-lift
- Determine the elements of high-lift flow physics that are critical for
modeling to enable the development of more accurate prediction methods and tools.
- Enhance CFD prediction capability for practical high-lift
aerodynamic design and optimization.
Participation in the high-lift prediction studies is not required to
attend the workshop; everyone is welcome.
- Open, unbiased
forums are included in the workshop to discuss the results and promote
cross-pollination of best practices.
- The HiLiftPW-3
test cases are based on two configurations: (1) a JAXA semi-span
high lift configuration, which includes
data for an assessment of nacelle-pylon effects; (2) a high-lift version
of NASA's Common Research Model (CRM), which has been designed but not yet
tested as of the date of this workshop.
- A registration fee
(separate from the registration fee for the
AIAA Aviation 2017 Conference)
will be required for attendance
to this workshop. The cost of the two-day HiLiftPW-3 workshop is anticipated to be approximately $260.
Register for the workshop through AIAA.
- This workshop is
being held in conjunction with a sister-workshop on
Geometry and Mesh Generation.
Because the HiLiftPW and the GMGW are occurring simultaneously and are sharing several sessions together,
one registration fee per attendee will allow that attendee to float between the two workshops
during the 2 days.
HiLiftPW-3 Registration (AIAA)4
|prior to workshop
1You must send in an abstract if you
plan to submit data and present results at
the workshop. Abstracts will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
The abstract should be only 1-2 pages long,
and should contain at least the following information:
name(s), affiliation(s), corresponding author contact information
(mailing address, phone number, and
e-mail address), brief description of solver code(s),
list of grid(s) being used, and which cases are being computed.
Please e-mail to:
See sampleabstract.pdf or
sampleabstract.docx for a sample abstract.
2Workshop participants are expected to attend and give presentations
of their results. These are not official AIAA-type presentations, and
there are no written papers associated with this workshop. However, some
participants will be invited to write and present a paper for
a special session on high lift prediction to be held during a future
3No data, no podium rule is in effect. You must submit data in order to be
able to present at the workshop.
4Registration for the workshop is done through AIAA. Registration opens
Feb 28, 2017. Go to:
Note that the HiLiftPW-3 registration fee is in addition to
the regular conference fee.
Also recall that there are two simultaneous workshops being held: the 3rd AIAA CFD High Lift Prediction Workshop
(this website) and the 1st AIAA Geometry and Mesh Generation
They are directly related, but the focuses are different (one on high-lift prediction, and one on geometry
preprocessing and mesh generation).
We anticipate that there will be some joint sessions.
You should register for the one you are most interested in (planning to spend the most time in).
<- NEW: includes wind tunnel geometry files for the JAXA LWT 1!
