The Challenge

Predict the effect of shock-induced separation on the variation of lift and pitching moment with increasing angle- of-attack at transonic conditions.

Flow conditions dominated by shock-induced separation represent a significant portion of the flight regime critical to aircraft safety and government certification regulations. All too often, anomalies in this flight regime are not discovered until flight test, resulting in expensive and time-consuming campaigns to "fix" associated issues. CFD can be far more efficient than wind tunnels in simulating the forces and moments of an elastic airplane at flight Reynolds number, but to be of practical use, CFD must be shown to adequately model the development and progression of shock-induced separation with increasing angle-of-attack in this portion of the flight envelope.

Test Cases

DPW-7 will focus on the NASA CRM Wing- Body configuration with prescribed static aeroelastic wing twist. Results will be compared to high-quality wind-tunnel data from multiple facilities.

Required

Case 1: Grid Convergence Study
Case 2: Alpha Sweeps at Constant Re
Case 3: Re Sweep at Constant CL

Optional

Case 4: Solution-Adapted Grid
Case 5: Beyond RANS: URANS, DDES, WMLES, Lattice-Boltzmann, etc.
Case 6: Coupled Aero-Structural Simulation

Geometries

Geometry files released on 13 April 2021. Please check the notes on the Geometry link for updated information.

Grids

Unstructured, Overset, and Multi-Block grids were released on 8 October 2021. Additional grids will be made available soon.

Any additional grids used to create submitted results must be provided to the DPW Committee.
