The evolution of the maximum-lift coefficient of a transport aircraft as a function of Reynolds number can be linked to modifications. of the laminar-turbulent transition process. In the framework of European project EUROLIFT I, a task was dedicated to the physical understanding and the numerical modeling of the transition process in high-lift configurations. Then in the follow-up project EUROLIFT II, a major step was the integration of transition-prediction tools within Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes solvers to estimate the impact of transition on performance. This paper presents an overview of the different activities dealing with transition in the EUROLIFT II project.
