Call for Papers AVT-307 Research Symposium on Separated Flow: Prediction, Measurement and Assessment for Air and Sea Vehicles

Monday, 07. October 2019 until Wednesday, 09. October 2019 08:00 - 17:30

NEW: Abstract Submission Deadline: 30 November 2018

Framework of the Meeting

The Applied Vehicle Panel (AVT) of the NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO) is organizing a symposium on Separated Flow: Prediction, Measurement and Assessment for Air and Sea Vehicles. The meeting is open to NATO Nations and four Enhanced Opportunity / Global Partners: Australia, Finland, Japan, and Sweden; the Symposium is classified as NATO UNCLASSIFIED OPEN TO AUSTRALIA, FINLAND, JAPAN, AND SWEDEN. The meeting will be held in Trondheim, Norway, 07 – 09 October 2019, during the fall 2019 AVT Panel Business Meeting Week.

The three day Symposium is planned to have approximately 36 papers, several of which will be invited. Full Symposium Proceedings will be published on the STO website:

General Scope and Symposium Objectives

The AVT-307 Technical Team is interested in establishing a new baseline in separated flow technology to capture advancements since the last NATO sponsored Symposium on Separated Flow in 1975. (See, AGARD CP-168.) The emphasis of the Symposium will be on smooth-surface separated flows relevant to the operation of advanced air and sea military vehicles. Contributions can range from systems to fundamental studies and can include numerical and experimental investigations. The objectives of the Symposium are to

  • Establish a baseline for current and anticipated air and sea vehicle issues regarding separated flow effects
  • Establish a baseline for current capability to predict separated flow effects and to measure separated flow phenomena that are relevant to air and sea vehicle needs
  • Identify key separated flow issues that require further research and development.

Symposium Topics

Papers are invited in the areas of:

  • Juncture and corner flows (for example: wing-body or wing-pylon juncture flows, inlet corner flows, etc., for aircraft and ships)
  • Vortex flows from wings and bodies (for example: leading-edge vortices, fore-body vortices, aft-body vortices, etc., for aircraft and ships)
  • Wing stall and wake flows (for example: high-lift flows, wake interaction flows, etc., for aircraft and ships)
  • Shock/boundary-layer interactions (for example: supersonic inlet flows, transonic wing flows, etc., for aircraft)
  • Free surface effects, ventilation, and cavitation (for example: free-surface induced vortices, bilge vortices, propeller flows, etc., for ships)

Emphasis will be placed on smooth-surface separation phenomena. All topics can include laminar flows, transitional flows, turbulent flows, and Reynolds number scaling effects. All topics can also include experimental and numerical investigations. Contributions can range from systems to fundamental studies, although fundamental studies must identify their relevance to vehicle needs. Authors are requested to identify the topic to which their paper applies.
