BANC – IV Workshop

Image_Categories_6_7Updated programme of the Workshop is available here


The 4th AIAA Workshop on Benchmark Problems for Air frame Noise Computations (BANC-IV) will be held in Lyon, France on June 02-03, 2016, immediately after the 22nd AIAA/CEAS Aeroacoustics Conference.

The objectives of the BANC-IV Workshop are to:

  • Provide a forum for a thorough assessment of simulation-based noise-prediction tools in the context of airframe configurations, including both near-field unsteady flow and the acoustic radiation generated via the interaction of this flow with solid surfaces.
  • Identify current gaps in physical understanding, experimental databases, and prediction capability for the major sources of airframe noise.
  • Help determine best practices and accelerate the development of benchmark quality datasets.
  • Promote coordinated studies of common configurations for maximum impact on the current state of the art in the understanding and prediction of airframe noise.

The BANC-IV workshop will focus on problem categories 1,4,5,6,7, and 8 from the BANC-II and BANC-III workshops as listed here
(Please note that Links to updated versions of the problem statements will soon be posted at the above URL).

The BANC-IV workshop is sponsored by the Aeroacoustics Technical Committee of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and is open to all interested participants. Computation of the BANC-IV configurations is not required to attend the workshop.
