  • Thursday January 21 and Friday January 22, 2021
  • 1000-1600 Eastern Time (0700-1300 Pacific Time) on Thursday; 0900-1500 Eastern Time (0600-1200 Pacific Time) on Friday
  • This workshop will assess and promote improvement to the current state-of-the-art in CFD-based transition modeling.

Registration Options:

  • AIAA Member Rate: $99
  • Non-Member Rate: $199


    • Assess the current state of the art in laminar-turbulent transition prediction in an industrial CFD environment
    • Determine and document best practices for transitional flow simulations
    • Verify transition/turbulence model implementations
    • Encourage risk taking by participants and promote improvements to CFD prediction capabilities

    General Information

    • The Transition Modeling and Prediction Workshop is modeled after the AIAA Drag Prediction and High-Lift Prediction Workshop series.
    • The primary test case will be the natural-laminar-flow variant of the Common Research Model (CRM-NLF) developed by NASA.
    • Participation in the transition modeling studies is not required to attend the workshop. Everyone is welcome!
    • Open forums and discussions will be included to encourage cross-pollination of ideas and practices.
    • Results will be made available after the workshop in a report and on the workshop website.
    • AIAA membership is not required.
