High-Fidelity CFD Verification Workshop (SciTech 2024)

Aims and scope

  • supporting new research in the field of high-fidelity CFD methods by providing verification cases to aid development and improvement of codes
  • identifying pacing items in high-fidelity methods and peripheral tools that need additional research and development in order to proliferate in the CFD community
  • facilitating collaboration and enhance mutual understanding among CFD researchers and practitioners in academia, government, and industry

2024 Workshop Logistics

The workshop will be held over two days January 6-7, 2024 in conjunction with SciTech 2024 in Orlando, Florida. The workshop is hosted in room Barrel Spring I, Lobby Level, in the Hyatt Regency Orlando.

Workshop Format

  • The workshop is organized into four test suites: Super/Hypersonic Flows, Mesh Motion, LES, RANS.
  • Each test suite has identified a set of test cases related to verification in their respective areas and have been worked to address identified challenges since SciTech 2023.
  • At the workshop, each test suite will give an overview presentation, followed by brief individual presentations from participants providing details of their numerical methodologies. Finally the test suite leads will present summarized results and an outlook for verification in their technical area.
  • Ample time for discussion is scheduled to deliberate over results, methodologies, and outstanding challenges related to verification.

Test suite descriptions

The workshop is structured as a collection of test suites in different technical areas. A special session was held at SciTech 2023 where each test suite documented their respective objectives and test campaigns. Those reference documents are accessible here:

Test suite repos

Each test suite is outfitted with it’s own github repository to facilitate communication, data dissemination and collection. The repositories for individual test suites can be found at:
