The workshop is a part of AIAA Science and Technology Forum (SciTech 2014) – one of the largest international aerospace conferences.
Ten participants delivered the results of aerodynamic shape optimization according to the specifications defined in the Workshop.
Only three participants (OPTIMENGA-777 among them) have delivered results for the most challenging test-case – a three-dimensional wing optimization driven by full Navier-Stokes equations.
The optimization by OPTIMENGA-777 was highly successful in reducing the wing drag at the prescribed conditions. The shape designed by OPTIMENGA-777 appeared to be the only one among the presented shapes suitable for industrial applications since it not only features a good transonic behavior in the design conditions but also possesses improved aerodynamic performance in off-design conditions, far beyond the design point.
