The annual Flow Visualization Showcase will provide an opportunity to display computational and/or experimental fluid-dynamics visualizations that support a technical concept. It is open to all who register for the AIAA Aviation Forum, regardless of whether they submit an extended abstract to the technical program. Related technical disciplines include:

  • Applied Aerodynamics
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Fluid Dynamics
  • Meshing, Visualization and Computational Environments
  • Plasmadynamics and Lasers
  • Thermophysics

The Flow Visualization Showcase is looking to highlight visualizations (both animations and images) that enhance the understanding of the flow. It is recommended that the animations be 3–5 minutes in length and run on a loop. Large-screen displays will be provided during the conference. The submissions will be judged and ranked in each of the following categories at the conclusion of the event:

  1. Most Artistic Flow Visualization,
  2. Most Insightful Flow Visualization.

First place awards for each category will be presented at the end of the showcase. All accepted visualizations will be uploaded to the AIAA YouTube channel.

If you are interested in participating and you are submitting an extended abstract to the technical program in one of the related technical disciplines mentioned above, please check the box during Step 2 of the abstract submission process. If you are interested in participating and you are not submitting an extended abstract in one of the related technical disciplines, please email the contacts above with a brief abstract. Participants will be emailed to verify their interest in showcase participation after the technical program has been finalized.
