5th AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop

DUE TO COVID-19, PAW-5 HAS BEEN MOVED TO SCITECH 2021. THE INFORMATION BELOW REFLECTS THIS CHANGE.

Workshop: January 9-10, 2021

AIAA SciTech Forum and Exposition

Virtual Meeting due to COVID-19

PAW Objectives:

  • Assess the numerical prediction capability (meshing, numerics, turbulence modeling, high-performance computing requirements, etc.) of current-generation CFD technology/codes for inlets, diffusers, and nozzles and their propulsion-specific boundary conditions.
  • Develop practical modeling guidelines for CFD prediction of propulsion flow fields.
  • Determine the elements of propulsion aerodynamics that are critical for modeling to enable the development of more accurate prediction methods and tools.
  • Enhance CFD prediction capability for practical propulsion aerodynamic design and optimization.
  • Promote education and mentoring of the next generation of propulsion CFD engineers

General Information:

  • PAW is patterned after the Drag Prediction Workshop (DPW) series. Participation in the propulsion workshop 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 PAW-5 test cases will include thermal predictions of film cooling in a hot nozzle flow and ground vortex ingestion on an inlet.

Communication:

  • PAW-5 Slack channel has been created for participants to use as a platform for collaboration across individual teams, for asking questions to workshop organizers, and for posting workshop-related topics of interest.
  • If interested, please contact Darrell Crowe at darrell.crowe@us.af.mil to be added to the group.
