    2nd CFD High Lift Prediction Workshop

    2nd AIAA CFD High Lift Prediction Workshop (HiLiftPW-2)


    22–23 June 2013


    Location: Sheraton San Diego, San Diego, California
    Held in conjunction with: AIAA Fluid Dynamics and Co-located Conferences and Exhibit



    • Assess the numerical prediction capability (meshing, numerics, turbulence modeling, high-performance computing requirements, etc.) of current-generation CFD technology/codes for swept, medium-to-high-aspect ratio wings for landing/take-off (high-lift) configurations.
    • Develop practical modeling guidelines for CFD prediction of highlift flow fields.
    • Determine the elements of high-lift flow physics that are critical for modeling to enable the development of more accurate prediction methods and tools.
    • Enhance CFD prediction capability for practical high-lift aerodynamic design and optimization.



    General Information


    • HiLiftPW is patterned after the Drag Prediction Workshop (DPW) series. Participation in the high-lift prediction 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 HiLiftPW-2 test cases are based on the European High Lift Programme (EUROLIFT) DLR F11 high-lift configuration. A significant amount of high-quality surface and flow field data are available, including data for an assessment of Reynolds number scale effects.
