Abstract

Aircraft performance prediction is one of the goals of research in aerodynamics. Computational methods are playing an increasing role in comparison to experimental studies. This is caused by two reasons. Firstly, the costs of experiments are increasing rapidly due to the higher accuracy demands and due to increasing operational costs. Secondly, computational power is getting cheaper and numerical methods are improving, which makes it possible to perform more realistic flow simulations at reasonable cost. Another advantage of computational methods is their ability to be used in optimization studies.
