Abstract
ASTRON RESEARCH AND ENGINEERING PROPOSES TO ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPLEMENTING A USAF-WIDE DATABASE OF CFD MODELS FOR THE SUPPORTABILITY OF AERODYNAMIC OF USAF AIRCRAFT. THIS STUDY WILL INCLUDE (1) AN EXAMINATION OF VARIOUS AIR FORCE ORGANIZATIONS AND THEIR CURRENT METHODS AND REQUIREMENTS FOR CFD MODEL DEVELOPMENT, ANALYSIS, AND DATA TRANSFER, (2) A SURVEY OF THE AVAILABLE SOFTWARE WHICH MAY BE USED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A CENTRALIZED CFD DATABASE, (3) A SPECIFICATION OF THE NECESSARY SOFTWARE AND SOFTWARE INTERFACES REQUIRED FOR CREATING THIS DATABASE, (4) A PLAN FOR IMPLEMENTING THE DATABASE, AND (5) AN ASSESSMENT OF THE RELATIVE COSTS FOR DEVELOPING AND IMPLEMENTING THE DATABASE USAF-WIDE. BOTH TANGIBLE AND INTANGIBLE BENEFITS WILL BE CONSIDERED IN THE ASSESSMENT OF THE FEASIBILITY OF THE CENTRALIZED DATABASE.
