Call for Papers (SciTech 2023)

The AIAA Applied Aerodynamics Rotorcraft Simulation Discussion Group will host multiple special sessions at SciTech 2023. These are a continuation of the previous SciTech special hover sessions that were held from 2014 to 2022. Organizers seek high quality papers covering a wide range of topics dealing with hover simulations including rotor performance, aeroelastic windup, boundary layer transition and flow separation prediction, wake capture, and aerodynamic interactional effects Consider revealing your blind predictions of the NASA/U.S. Army Hover Validation and Acoustic Baseline (HVAB) rotor test. Details of the run-conditions, guidelines, expected results, abstracts of previous investigations, geometry and grids are available the AIAA Rotorcraft Simulation Discussion Group website:


A new common download prediction challenge will be revealed in May, 2022. Code-to-code comparisons will highlight details of this complex aerodynamic flow field including flow separation location, frequency content of the shed wake, and sensitivities to height above the ground plane.


Call for papers is available at: Participants will need to upload abstracts by June 1, 2022. Abstracts should clearly detail the focus areas of your hover investigations. When submitting through AIAA’s conference website for SciTech-2023, please choose:

Topic -> "Applied Aerodynamics",

Sub-Topic ->"Special Session: Rotor-in-Hover Simulation Sessions"


This will ensure that your submission is tagged correctly.
