The research objectives of this project are to develop and demonstrate advanced multidisciplinary numerical simulation capabilities for aerospace vehicles with emphasis on highly accurate, massively parallel computational methods for a broad range of applications, including Direct and Large-Eddy simulation of transition and turbulence, traditional and plasma-based active flow control, aero-optics, unsteady aerodynamics and nonlinear fluidstructure interactions. These technical objectives directly support AFRL and the Aerospace Systems Directorates requirements on persistent ISR, Future Air Dominance and Energy Efficiency. This in-house task, designated as a Star Team by AFOSR, is a key core task within the Computational Sciences Center of Excellence.
