RBF4AERO at Flexible Engineering Toward Green Aircraft Conference

The consortium will be participating in the conference entitled "Flexible Engineering Toward Green Aircraft" hosted by University of Rome Tor Vergata (Rome, Italy) and that will be taking place on 14th December 2017. The objective of the conference is to present the status of research in the aerospace field and to highlight the recent achievements in analysis and design methodologies adopted in the aircraft design process. Since the focus is on topics as Aeroelasticity, Aerodynamic Robust Design and Shape Optimization, the project coordinator will describe the implementation and application of the rbf4aeroFSI, namely the fluid-structure interaction cross-solver capable to perform shape optimizations including the elasticity of deformable components.
