“The Principal Bottleneck”
The CFD Vision 2030 Study identified mesh generation (including geometry preparation) as the “principal bottleneck” in the application of CFD. GMGW-1 is a direct result of the AIAA Meshing, Visualization, and Computational Environments technical committee’s intent to take a first step on the path to removing that bottleneck
This two-day workshop will assess the current state-of-the art in geometry preprocessing and mesh generation technology and software as applied to a transport aircraft in a high-lift configuration. It will help identify and develop understanding of areas of needed improvement (performance, accuracy, applicability) in geometry processing and mesh generation technology software. And it will provide a foundation for documenting best practices for geometry preprocessing and mesh generation.
The workshop is being offered in conjunction with the 3rd AIAA CFD High Lift Prediction Workshop (HiLiftPW-3), after which GMGW-1 is being patterned. The two workshops will share opening and closing sessions.
Meshing the HL-CRM
The workshop’s test case is a simplified version of NASA’s High Lift Common Research Model (HL-CRM), one of the benchmark cases for HiLiftPW-3. The HL-CRM has been simplified in the sense that the slat and flaps are not attached to the wing. Workshop participants will be asked to collect and report data about their experience meshing the HL-CRM geometry.
