Bristol, 3rd August 2017 - The Symposium Call for Presentations for the 2017 Airbus Flight Physics Distributed Research & Technology Partnership (DiPaRT) event have been announced. Taking place between the 20th and 22nd November 2017, the themes for this year’s event are: 

  • Friction Drag Control
  • Configuration and Active Flow Control
  • Aerodynamic design and optimisation
  • Loads and Aeroelastics Control
  • Simulations and Simulation Processes (High and Low Fidelity)
  • Multidisciplinary Processes, Analysis and Optimisation including Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE)
  • Uncertainty Quantification and Management
  • Big Data Analytics

To submit a proposed symposium presentation abstract, a short description of up to 500 words and an accompanying title is required. The deadline for the receipt of submissions is 6th October 2017 and must be uploaded through the DiPaRT event portal, which can be accessed here. The final Symposium Programme will be announced on 20th October 2017.

DiPaRT was created in 2010 by Airbus UK as a mechanism for engaging and collaborating with the UK Flight Physics R&T community. 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

DiPaRT commences on 20th November with a series of keynote talks, followed by the Flight Physics Symposium where delegates are split into streams. Registrations for the DiPaRT event will commence in October 2017 through the CFMS website and DiPaRT Portal

About CFMS

The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS) is proud to be a growing, independent and not-for-profit organisation that specialises in digitally enabled high value design capability. We promote advanced modelling and simulation, underpinned by High Performance Computing (HPC), pushing the boundaries of technology.

Through our exceptional, collaborative, virtual and physical facilities, we enable the adoption and acceleration of new technologies for advanced modelling and simulation, while improving learning and developing awareness of state-of-the-art. Engaging with organisations large and small, we help to provide access to the right tools, resources, skills and technologies, resulting in increased productivity and faster, more informed decision-making. 

As a trusted and neutral provider, our vision is to drive a practical revolution in engineering capability and design, working with organisations to reduce risk in the design phase, product development costs and time to market.

About DiPaRT

DiPaRT has been created by Airbus as a mechanism for communicating with, engaging and orchestrating the UK Flight Physics R&T community. The aim is to foster a coherent, well informed and motivated partnership that can help Airbus effectively deliver its strategic vision for a UK 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.
