CFMS to host GHandI-DiPaRT Advanced Geometry Modelling Workshop

CFMS to host GHandI-DiPaRT Advanced Geometry Modelling Workshop

The Centre for Modelling and Simulation (CFMS) will be hosting the first *GHandI-**DiPaRT Advanced Geometry Modelling Workshop at Bristol and Bath Science Park. Taking place on 2nd and 3rd September 2015, the event will see delegates from academia and the Flight Physics and Aerodynamics communities gather together to discuss the very topical and challenging area of ‘Geometry Modelling’.

Delivered over the course of two days, the first day of the workshop will be devoted to GHandI and will set out the current industrial state-of-the-art, reviewing project objectives and progress, with presentations from participants. The second day of the workshop will comprise of a set of guest lectures from leading researchers, which will present new and innovative ideas by which the industrial state-of-the-art can advance.

Sam Paice, Chief Operating Officer, CFMS,“ We’re delighted to be hosting and taking part in the DiPaRT-GHandI workshop. This is an exceptional opportunity for the organisations that are part of the Flight Physics R&T and Aerodynamic community to share research and discuss potential innovations for this very current topic.”

*The Airbus Flight Physics Distributed R&T Partnership (DiPaRT) was created in 2010 by Airbus UK as a mechanism for engaging and collaborating with the UK Flight Physics R&T community, aiding the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI)  in its mission. Supporting the UK centred capability in design and integration of wings, landing gear and associated systems, the DiPaRT network of organisations and partners identify potential technologies and research aligned with Airbus R&T strategy. Providing the opportunity to shape and influence pathways, DiPaRT provides transparency of Airbus’s strategic aspirations to shape and influence pathways in Flight Physics R&T.

**Geometry Handling and Integration (GHandI) is a three year industry and ATI funded project aimed at improving the methods and processes for generating and manipulating high fidelity aircraft and turbo machinery component geometries and their associated computational meshes. For the first time, GHandI brings together key strands of the UK aerodynamics community, enabling a more integrated aerodynamic design capability.

About CFMS

The Centre for Modelling and Simulation (CFMS) is an independent, not-for-profit specialist in modelling and simulation. We support the UK delivery of new design methods and processes. Through our development centre and state-of-the-art facility, we offer specialist skills, resource and access to best in class technologies to enable organisations to achieve significant advances in design processes.

At the heart of innovation, we bridge the gap between industry, academia and the research supply chain, facilitating collaboration, shaping the development agenda’s of industrial process users and capability suppliers. As a trusted and neutral provider, our vision is to drive a revolution in engineering capability and design, working with organisations to reduce risk in the design phase, product development costs and time to market.

About the DiPaRT

DiPaRT has been created by Airbus as a mechanism for communicating and engaging with the UK Flight Physics R&T community. The aim is to foster a coherent, well informed and motivated distributed partnership that can help Airbus deliver effectively its strategic vision for UK centred capability, supporting design and integration of wings, landing gear and associated systems.

Following the establishment of the UK Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), this remit acquires a special significance. The objectives of the ATI with regards to flight physics, delivered largely through its Aerodynamics Pillar, are:

  • The provision and facilitation of a meeting space for industry, academia, government officials and experts to discuss ideas and productively shape the design and manufacturing of aerodynamics technologies
  • To channel funds for R&D based on the ideas and discussions that take place
  • To develop and deploy the UK's strategy for aerodynamics, while also showcasing the UK's capabilities in complex aerodynamics to the global market

To build UK leadership in the Wing of the Future, DiPaRT is well placed to support ATI in this mission, carrying out much of the groundwork that enables Airbus and its flight physics R&T stakeholders to contribute from a sound and informed position; DiPaRT is poised to be the practical bridge between Airbus and the ATI. This role will be central to the composition of the 2014 DiPaRT Programme by which it is to be hoped that current research activity can be modulated, and new ideas stimulated that in the fullness of time will contribute to the establishment of UK leadership in the Wing of the Future.

About GHandI

GHandI (Geometry Handling and Integration) is a three year Industry & ATI funded project aimed at improving the methods and processes for generating and manipulating high fidelity aircraft and turbo-machinery component geometries and their associated computational meshes. . For the first time, GHandI brings together key strands of the UK aerodynamics community who are currently active in these areas, As such; it constitutes a key pillar towards enabling a more integrated aerodynamic design capability.
