This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 769025.
The MADELEINE project focuses on the development and validation of multidisciplinary design tools and gives special attention to the understanding of multi-physics phenomena, the simulation of manufacturing processes and the transition to High-Performance Computing (HPC). More specifically MADELEINE will:
- Upgrade the CAPABILITY of MDO, enhanced by HiFi simulations, to capture the essential interactions between disciplines;
- Improve the EFFICIENCY of MDO to explore large design spaces;
- Enhance the USABILITY of MDO for industrial design, through dedicated modelling;
- Extend the IMPACT of MDO on cost reduction by including requirements from manufacturing.
The technologies (multi-physics adjoint solvers, parameterisations, MDO formulations, High Performance Computing, manufacturing oriented design) will be demonstrated for airframe and engine design: aero-structure wing design, aero-acoustic fan and propeller design, manufacturing oriented aero-structure fan design and manufacturing oriented aero-thermal high-pressure turbine design.
The 36-month project started in June 2018 gathering 15 partners from 6 European countries: 5 universities, 4 research centres, 2 software companies (including 1 SME) and 3 large industries.
