3rd Workshop (2020)

The third workshop is planned for the weekend before the AIAA Science and Technology Forum and Exposition (SciTech 2020) 4-5 January 2020 at Hyatt Regency Orlando in Orlando, Florida. Near field simulation and atmospheric propagation methods will be presented. The two part workshop will cover both the state-of-the-art for predicting near field sonic boom signatures with CFD as well as propagation of the near field pressures to the ground. Participants are encouraged to apply their best practices for computing solutions for the provided cases. There is particular interest in exploring refinement techniques including grid adaptation and alignment with flow characteristics.

Sonic Boom Prediction Workshop Propagation Presentation Guidelines (Version 2)

The ‘biconvex’ nearfield CFD shock-plume interaction, the ‘c608’ nearfield CFD Low Boom Flight Demonstrator, and the ‘case1’ and ‘case2’ propagation cases are available. The Notice of Intent included a request for ‘axie’ nearfield CFD and ‘axibody’ propagation repeat cases from the previous workshop. Repeating this previous case allows new and previous participants an opportunity to practice the case submission process and self-evaluate results based on published submissions and submission statistics.
