Abstract:

The Symposium on Overset Composite Grids and Solution Technology is a bi-annual international meeting focused on the use of overset grid technology in numerical solutions. It provides an open communication forum for mathematicians, scientists, and engineers from academia, industry, and government who are working with or interested in using the overset grid approach. The specific goals of the symposium are as follows to communicate recent work, new research ideas, and work in progress to exchange ideas involving overset grid technologies, including unsteady and moving body problems and emerging hybrid strategies and to provide an opportunity for interaction among researchers, developers, and practitioners. The 8th Overset Symposium was held October 2-5, 2006, at the Gilruth Center of the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. A total of 136 people, including 22 students, attended the symposium, which was an increase from the 2004 symposium attendance of 83 people, including 17 students. A total of 41 presentations were made covering a wide range of topics. In addition to the normal symposium sessions, this year two short courses were held on Monday, October 2nd that proved to be quite successful. The first was an overset class that covered the basic steps of the overset CFD process. The second was a class that covered the latest models and methods available in the OVERFLOW 2 Navier-Stokes CFD code.
