Geometry and Mesh Generation Workshops (GMGW) assess the current state-of-the art in geometry and mesh generation technology and software as applied to aircraft and spacecraft systems. They will help identify and develop understanding of areas of needed improvement (performance, accuracy, applicability) in geometry and mesh generation technology software. And they will provide a foundation for documenting best practices for geometry and mesh generation.

Workshops are open to participants worldwide and provide an unbiased forum for discussion of results and promotion and cross-pollination of best practices. Participants (those people who generate meshes) and any interested parties who wish to attend, listen, and contribute are welcome.

The 3rd AIAA Geometry and Mesh Generation Workshop (GMGW-3) will be held concurrently with the 4th AIAA CFD High Lift Prediction Workshop. These workshops will be conducted differently than in the past. Technology Focus Groups (TFGs) composed of members and participants from both workshops are being formed with the intent to answer key questions of importance to each TFG in the months leading up to the workshop. By forming TFGs, the workshop organizers are attempting to accelerate the rate of progress by taking advantage of the collective brain-power within our communities. The eventual goal is to better understand, document, accelerate, and extend our abilities to model and process complex geometry like the High Lift Common Research Model (CRM-HL) and generate meshes that enhance the CFD community's ability to predict high-lift aerodynamics.



Technology Focus Groups

For GMGW-3 and HLPW-4, TFGs have been created for the following topic areas. Information about membership, test cases, and related geometry files are available on each TFG page.

TFGs consist of teams of geometry, meshing, and solver participants that are working together in a collaborative manner in order to address aspects of TFG key questions. Members of TFGs are actively engaged in workshop-related efforts up until the workshop itself (currently slated for AIAA Aviation 2021). Topics that the TFG teams are studying span areas of interest to both workshops. Data generated and collected from these teams will be presented in a combination of joint and individual presentations at the workshops.

Workshop Participation

The time for submitting your intent to participate is now past. Thank you to the community for your overwhelming response to our upcoming workshops. We look forward to seeing the collaborative research that will occur between now and the workshop on June 5-6, 2021.

If you were unable to join before the deadline and still plan to perform your own related research, you are welcome to attend the workshop as an observer and join the discussions. Observers need do nothing else at this time.
