An international workshop on High Lift Prediction took place in June 2010 in Chicaco, Illinois in association with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The objectives were multifold:
- To assess the numerical prediction capability (mesh, numerics, turbulence modeling, high-performance computing requirements, etc.) of current-generation CFD technology/codes for swept, medium/high-aspect ratio wings in landing/take-off (high-lift) configurations.
- To develop practical modeling guidelines for CFD prediction of high-lift flowfields.
- To advance the understanding of high-lift flow physics to enable development of more accurate prediction methods and tools.
- To enhance CFD prediction capability for practical high-lift aerodynamic design and optimization.
- To provide an impartial forum for evaluating the effectiveness of existing computer codes and modeling techniques.
- To identify areas needing additional research and development.
CFS Engineering's results were presented and may be found here.
