Abstract:

In the spirit of the Air Force Office of Scientific Researchs AFOSR initiative to promote universityindustry collaborative research, a collaborative project entitled, Numerical Flow Simulation for Complete Vehicle Configurations has been executed by the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Computational Field Simulation NSF ERC at Mississippi State University. The industrial participants include McDonnell Aircraft Company, McDonnell Douglas Research and Development Company and Teledyne Brown Engineering Company. The research and development activities of this effort are focused on the advancement of methodologies to increase the efficiency, quality and productivity of an overall CFD simulation associated with geometrically complex configurations. The progress realized in the aforestated development is presented in this report. Progress concerning efforts designed to increase the efficiency and productivity of an overall CFD simulation process - from geometry definition to post processing of results as applied to complete aircraft configurations is presented. This progress has been brought about through enhancements in geometry processing, surface grid generation, grid refinement, grid adaptation, and domain decomposition strategies. Computational fluid dynamics, Grid generation, Grid adaptation, Domain decomposition.
