NPARC Alliance Verification and Validation Archive

Last Updated: Tuesday, 03-Apr-2012 14:05:12 EDT

The archive consists of cases. Each case represents a geometric configuration and flow condition (i.e. ONERA M6 wing, MADIC 3D nozzle). A case can be classified as either a verification or validation case depending on whether the comparison data for the case is exact (analytical) or experimental, respectively. Each case contains one or more studies. Each study consists of one or more runs of the Wind-US code (or another CFD code). Throughout some of the cases and studies are detailed examples that provide a step-by-step description or tutorial on using WIND and associated tools.
