for the development of

computational methods to

predict all aspects of hovering

flight efficiently, practically,

and accurately

The Grand Challenge Problem

An isolated rotor is difficult to simulate and the Hover Prediction Working Group has made great strides towards rapid and accurate hover predictions. However, the rotor community requires many more elements of the hovering rotorcraft to be reliably and swiftly simulated. The image below captures many important elements – some of which you may be able to address today. Share your capability at an upcoming Hover Prediction Workshop Event and continue adding capability until the complete problem is finally addressed.
