Abstract : Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has developed to the point where the flow field around practical aircraft and missile configurations can be described fairly realistically. Although problems related to the numerical accuracy (grid refinement) and turbulence modeling still limit the application of these codes, their use today is an integral part of aircraft development and design. Before a specific code can be used with confidence, It is essential to validate the code (to test the capability of the code to describe the physics of the flow correctly) or to calibrate the code (to establish the usefulness and reliability of the code for practical design applications). An essential part of the validation process is a comparison of the CFD code with the experiment. The report has been split up in two volumes. Volume I provides a review of the theoretical (chapter 2) and experimental (chapter 3) requirements, followed by a general introduction to the test cases (chapter 4), a two-page summary of all test cases (chapter 5) and finally a discussion and some recommendations for the future (chapter 6). The detailed information on the 39 test cases can be found in Volume II. Accompanying this is a set of floppy disk's where the relevant data of all test cases have been compiled. This set of floppy disks can be obtained upon request through AGARD's National Distribution Centers
