Event description

Description

The AeroGust Project

AeroGust is a state of the art engineering computer simulation project investigating gust interactions with aircraft. The aim of the project is to develop innovative methods that allow radical aircraft design changes by responding to three main areas of work:

1) Investigations using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to gain a deeper understanding of the complexities in gust interactions with an aircraft;

2) Creation of a numerical gust loads process that does not require wind tunnel data for early design stages;

3) Development of efficient reduced order models for gust prediction that account for aerodynamic and structural complexity at an acceptable cost.

Whilst AeroGust mainly focusses on the problems associated with aeroelastic aircraft, the fundamental physics is common to large wind turbines. Therefore the methodology of AeroGust will find direct application in wind turbine design.

Workshop information

We are holding an exciting workshop that will give unique insight into cutting edge technicques aimed at redefining the industrial gust loads process. Not only will you get the chance to engage with innovative research about but you will also be able to discuss with our project partners from across industry and academia, all of whom have relevant experience in the field of numerical modelling of unsteady fluid flows and aeroelastics and are recognized experts in these fields.

Download the full workshop brochure (PDF) with individual abstracts.
