Registration Options:

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

  • Workshop Hours:
    1200–1700 hrs  (Eastern Time)

    Organized by the AIAA Inlets, Nozzles & Propulsion Systems Integration Technical Committee.

    PAW Objectives:

    • Assess the numerical prediction capability (meshing, numerics, turbulence modeling, high-performance computing requirements, etc.) of current-generation CFD technology/codes for inlets, diffusers, and nozzles and their propulsion-specific boundary conditions.
    • Develop practical modeling guidelines for CFD prediction of propulsion flow fields.
    • Determine the elements of propulsion aerodynamics that are critical for modeling to enable the development of more accurate prediction methods and tools.
    • Enhance CFD prediction capability for practical propulsion aerodynamic design and optimization.
    • Promote education and mentoring of the next generation of propulsion CFD engineers.

    General Information:

    • PAW is patterned after the Drag Prediction Workshop (DPW) series. Participation in the propulsion workshop 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 PAW05 test cases will include thermal predictions of film cooling in a hot nozzle flow and an inlet in cross-flow.
    • Please visit https://paw.larc.nasa.gov/ for further workshop details and test cases.
