Over the last several decades, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods are undergoing significant developments and have developed to be one of the most important tools in the research of fluid dynamics in additional to theoretical analysis and experiments. The CFD technique finds wide usage in different fields related to fluids, e.g., aerodynamics force and heat flow, configuration optimization, flow control strategies, and turbulence strength enhancement. Among these applications, the AIAA holds five drag prediction workshops [1] and the latest High Lift workshop [2], which aim at calculating the lift and drag force accurately using these methods. To make the CFD methods reliable, a lot of research has been conducted on the validation and verification of CFD methods.
