Steady and unsteady viscous simulations of a full-scale, semi-span and full-span model of the F-16XL-1 aircraft at seven different flight Reynolds/Mach number combinations have been performed with an unstructured CFD code. The steady-state simulations are with several turbulence models of different complexity. Detached-Eddy Simulation (DES) has been used to compute the unsteady flow. The computed results are compared with public domain flight-test data. Very good agreement is demonstrated for surface pressure distribution, local skin friction and boundary velocity profiles. The different turbulence models performed almost equally well, except the Spalart-Allmaras model, which failed to predict the flow qualitatively and quantitatively. The Differential Reynolds Stress Model (DRSM) outperformed all other models when it comes to local span-wise skin friction. DES was superior over RANS modeling at the highest angle of attack, where the flow over the outer wing is separated and partly unsteady.
