Abstract : The Conference includes two meetings. The first, had the goal of establishing a data base of test cases for comparison with computations. This volume contains a record of the proceedings of the 1980 meeting and a display of the test cases used in the 1981 meeting for comparison with computations. The main sections of the volume include: (1) Pictorial summary charts providing a compact picture of the nature of the test cases. (2) Three position papers covering: (a) Data needs for computational fluid dynamics; (b) Some improvements to the theory of uncertainty analysis and the use of that theory for the present Conference; and (c) Description of Data Library. (3) Description of test cases including: Specifications for computations; and Output plots for the test cases. (4) Reports of ad-hoc committees on topics of general interest; and (5) Index to Flow Cases.
