Forthcoming Challenges for Aerodynamics
March 30, 31, April 1 2015
The 3AF Conference on Applied Aerodynamics is organized each year by the French Aeronautics and Space Society (3AF). The 50th edition entitled "Forthcoming Challenges for Aerodynamics" will be held in 2015 (March 30, 31, April 1) at Toulouse, France.
The conference is an excellent opportunity for scientific exchanges among the aerospace community where aerodynamicists from industry, research institutions and academics meet. Scientists and engineers from other domains involving fluid mechanics are also welcome.
The topics of interest are:
- New technologies: laminarity, drag reduction, flow control, surface coatings…
- New configurations: propulsion system installation, aircraft, UAV and compound rotorcraft design, CROR (Counter Rotating Open Rotor)…
- Challenges in flow modelling and numerical simulation: transitional and largely separated flows, low Reynolds number flows, unsteadiness, High Performance Computing (HPC)…
- Experimental challenges: motorized model, advanced instrumentation, miniaturization and new methodology in the field of measurements and data acquisition, post-processing…
- Synergy between computation and experiment (wind tunnels, flight tests)
- Multidisciplinary and multiphysics approaches: optimization and coupling problems
- Aerodynamics for sustainability.
The conference is organized on the basis of five half-days of technical presentations, each introduced by a keynote conference given by an expert in the field covered by the session. It is concluded by a technical visit in connection with the conference’s subject.
