Forum 360: CFD2030 Aerospace Grand Challenges for Revolutionary CFD Capabilities 16 June 2020 1430 - 1600

As described in the CFD Vision 2030 report published in 2014, Grand Challenges “drive the identification and solution of the critical CFD barriers that would lead to a desired revolutionary CFD capability.” For this purpose, several initial Grand Challenges have been formulated to focus community attention and resources to address critical shortcomings in CFD predictive capability in key product and system categories. In this panel, a brief summary of the proposed Grand Challenges will be discussed, highlighting key technical obstacles and the quantified benefit to industrial product development in overcoming those obstacles. Panelists will then provide expert opinion on the design, execution, and importance of Grand Challenge efforts, and effective ways to engage the science and engineering communities to efficiently tackle these long-term focus activities.
