Technical collaborations

During the development of the Project’s activities, RBF4AERO Consortium entered into agreement with several third parties. These technical collaborations were established with two main objectives:

  1. to widen the number of CFD solvers compatible with the RBF4AERO Benchmark Technology;
  2. to share RBF4AERO Benchmark Technology approaches and methodologies with other EU funded projects in order to disseminate and exploit achieved results.

The collaborations established by RBF4AERO Consortium are:

EU funded projects


The R.I.B.E.S. (Radial basis functions at fluid Interface Boundaries to Envelope flow results for advanced Structural analysis) research project proposes an innovative approach for loads mapping based on Radial Basis Functions (RBF) theory. A technology previously developed in the field of mesh morphing (RBF Morph™) capable to deal with large dataset (millions of points) will be used to enable an accurate mapping. The meshless nature of the method facilitates all the complex tasks needed to properly exchange information between meshes.
