Agenda for Workshop

Workshop Goals
The goals of this workshop include:
1. Network individuals from industry, government and academia who are interested in aeronautics research
2. Share experiences from industry, government and government participants on key issues relating to computational algorithms and analysis tools pertaining to the analysis and optimization of aerodynamics, structures, and materials with application to aircraft and engines
3. Identify future research priorities
4. Create new opportunities for research collaborations between industry, government and academia

Research Areas
This workshop will focus on computational algorithms and analysis tools pertaining to the analysis and optimization of aerodynamics, structures, and materials with application to aircraft and engines. A wide range of topics are of interest under this theme, including efficient and robust analysis of steady and unsteady fluid flows, meshing issues, geometry definition and CAD interface, multi-disciplinary analysis, single- and multi-disciplinary optimization, and parallel algorithms. Relevant applications include aerothermodynamics, icing, heat transfer, aeroelasticity, aeroacoustics, aerodynamic optimization, structural optimization, combined aero-structural optimization, computational fluid dynamics, microstructure analysis of composite materials, crack growth, and the virtual engine.

During the two-day workshop there will be talks from both academic, government and industry participants as well as round table discussions on future research priorities in the following two areas:
1. Structures and multi-disciplinary optimization (including fluid-structure interaction, e.g. aeroelasticity)
2. Aerodynamics, CFD, and Aerodynamic Optimization
