An aerodynamic distortion grill is employed to create non-uniform flow from arbitrary uniform upstream flow conditions. Such grills find widespread use in aerodynamic testing applications to generate non-uniform flow conditions. In this paper, the numerical results of the distortion created by one such aerodynamic distortion grill are reported. The computational results were validated against the experimentally observed distortion indices. Further, parametric numerical studies were done by varying the inlet turbulence intensity and by scaling up the geometry of the flow system.
