Future Outlook

  • P. G. Tucker
Part of the Fluid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 104)


The future outlook for unsteady aeronautical flows is explored and overall conclusions given. The nature of potential best practices is discussed. Flow taxonomies are proposed as a basis for an expert system to allow the industrial use of eddy resolving simulations. A process chain for such simulations is proposed. Also, the use of eddy resolving simulations in coupled problems is briefly explored.
