Dinner Meeting-Dr. Pradeep Raj-Applied Computational Aerodynamics (ACA): Reflections on My Long and

When:  Oct 22, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  Dayton/Cincinnati Section

Dr. Raj will share his unique perspective on the evolution of the applied computational aerodynamics (ACA) discipline. He has been a keen observer of, and an active participant in,

the phenomenal advancement of ACA by virtue of conducting and leading many research, development, and application campaigns at Lockheed Martin that were primarily focused on increasing the effectiveness of ACA for aircraft design. Today we have a full-spectrum ACA capability to support aircraft design needs. However, even after seven decades of development, the effectiveness is less than satisfactory for configurations whose aerodynamic characteristics are dominated by complex flows, that is, separated flows and/or free vortices. The presentation will illustrate the capabilities and limitations of ACA through representative examples including the YF-22 and F-22 design efforts. The speaker will share his thoughts on the challenges and future prospects of achieving a truly effective capability.
