Title: Future Directions of High Fidelity CFD for Aerothermal Turbomachinery Analysis and Design

Abstract

Computational fluid dynamics is a powerful tool used on a daily basis by designers and researchers in the advancement of propulsion technology. As hardware and software technology continue to evolve, the impact on propulsion systems has the potential to be disruptive. with continued development of High Performance Computing, Large Eddy Simulation, High-Order unstructured grid algorithms, optimization and uncertainty quantification it is conceivable that a new frontier of simulation based research, analysis and design capability is in the foreseeable future. In order to accelerate this development collaboration between industry, academia and government labs is required.
