Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics and Multidisciplinary Design book series (NNFM, volume 117)


This paper presents the European collaborative project “Advanced Turbulence simulation for Aerodynamic Application Challenges”, i.e. its background, objectives, approach and status. As an example of the outcome of this project, results obtained by some partners for one of the test cases employed are compared and discussed highlighting the status of today’s hybrid RANS/LES approaches.
