Sponsored by the Applied Aerodynamics TC
in collaboration with the Royal Aeronautical Society
2-Day Workshop before the AIAA AVIATION 2022 Conference
Chicago, IL USA
25-26 June 2022
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.
To build on the 20+ years of success of the AIAA Drag Prediction Workshop series.
To assess the state-of-the-art computational methods as practical
aerodynamic tools for aircraft force and moment prediction of industry
To provide an impartial forum for evaluating the effectiveness of
existing computer codes and modeling techniques using Navier-Stokes
To identify areas needing additional research and development.

Data Submittal Deadline
Workshop registration will be handled through normal AIAA procedures.
Workshop presentations will not be official AIAA papers;
however, several participants will be invited to support a special session
on shock-induced separation prediction to be held
during the AIAA SciTech Meeting, January 2023.
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.
