Abstract

This paper focuses on computational prediction of aerodynamic and the flow field characteristics for NASA Common Research Model (CRM) in it's High-Lift (HL) configuration in close proximity to the ground. The URANS simulation with the Spalart-Allmaras (SA) turbulence model is checked for the quality of the generated mesh and compared with the available wind tunnel data. The obtained simulation results in the immediate vicinity of the ground demonstrate significant changes in the longitudinal and lateral-directional aerodynamic characteristics in aircraft banked positions, which is important for a better understanding of aircraft landing in crosswind conditions.
