High Lift Prediction Workshop III

As one of 40 teams competing at High-Lift Prediction Workshop III, Hoffman-Jansson-Johnson showed for the first time computational simulation of full time-dependent turbulent flow around a jumbo-jet in full landing configuration, including the following unique features:

  • automatic turbulence simulation
  • automatic adaptive error control
  • computational efficiency
  • superb agreement with experiment including stall

as the overall best result. The flow simulator by HJJ opens the possibility of constructing a first real flight simulator based on the real physics of turbulent air flow. Such a simulator will open to new forms of realistic pilot training of e.g. take-off and landing of a jumbo-jet under severe wind conditions or machine failure.
