CFD Engineer, Andy Luo, presented at the 3rd AIAA CFD High Lift Prediction Workshop hosted by the AIAA Aviation and and Aeronautics Forum and Exposition on June 3, 2017 in Denver, CO. The Workshop was well attended with 36 participants from 14 countries ranging from academia to CFD vendors to research labs.
The Workshop aimed at assessing numerical prediction capabilities of different CFD codes and methods for swept, medium-to-high aspect ratios for landing/takeoff configurations. It also looked to strengthen CFD prediction capability for high lift aerodynamic design and optimization.
TotalSim’s contribution to the Workshop included running the simulations in TotalSim’s version of OpenFOAM as well as NASA’s FUN3D code. TotalSim’s submission can be viewed at the link below.
