    2nd AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop (PAW02)

    2nd AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop (PAW02)

    31 july - 1 August 2014

    Location: Cleveland, Ohio
    Venue: Cleveland Medical Mart & Convention Center
    Workshop registration is required to attend



    The focus of the workshop will be on assessing the accuracy of CFD in obtaining multi-stream air breathing propulsion related flows.
    The blind trail studies will be performed by all participants and compared with available data. The workshop provides an impartial forum to present findings, discuss results, exchange ideas, and evaluate the effectiveness of existing processes and techniques. Participation in the studies is not required to attend. Everyone is welcome! The workshop ( offers academia scholarships to qualified participants, upon request. Financial contributions & services to the workshop are welcome. If interested, please email for more details

    Workshop organizer:


    The Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop Organizing Committee consists many members of the ABP TC members from industry, research institutions and academia.The workshop is Sponsored by the Air Breathing Propulsion Systems Integration Technical Committee.
