Benchmarking the Langtry-Menter Transition Model Using OVERFLOW for the AIAA Transition Modeling Workshop

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Several common test cases for validation of boundary-layer transition models are presented and benchmarked for the common Langtry-Menter transition model. Such standard test cases provide a suite of data for code verification and can be used similarly to investigate the inner workings of the transition model and provide guidance on model calibration. In this work, the NASA OVERFLOW 2.3d solver is employed to simulate and predict transition for two-dimensional and three-dimensional test cases, ranging from zero-pressure-gradient flat plates to full, three-dimensional wings with varying sweep. Results are compared quantitatively and qualitatively with experimental data along with existing computational data sets. Grid resolution studies are performed for some test cases to determine sensitivity to grid spacing with respect to transition prediction.
