Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) flow solutions for the M2129 diffusing S-duct with and without vane effectors were computed by the Wind-US flow solver. Both structured and unstructured 3-D grids were used. Without vane effectors, the duct exhibited massive flow separation in both experiment and CFD. With vane effectors installed, the flow remained attached and aerodynamic losses were reduced. Total pressure recovery and distortion near the duct outlet were computed from the solutions and compared favorably to experimental values. These calculations are part of a validation effort for the Wind-US code. They also provide an example case to aid engineers in learning to use the Wind-US software.
