Adaptive Higher-Order Variational Methods for Aerodynamic Applications in Industry

Objective

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a key enabler for meeting the strategic goals of future air transportation as specified in the ACARE Vision 2020 Report. The limitations of today's numerical tools reduce the scope of innovation in aircraft development, keeping aircraft design at a conservative level.

The goal of the ADIGMA project is to overcome these limitations by developing innovative numerical simulation techniques with significant improvements in efficiency, accuracy and reliability. These essential improvements in CFD will strengthen all wider simulation capabilities like optimisation and multi-disciplinary design.

The main objective of the ADIGMA project is the development and utilization of innovative adaptive higher-order methods for the compressible flow equations enabling reliable, mesh independent numerical solutions for large-scale aerodynamic applications in aircraft design. A critical assessment of the newly developed methods for industrial aerodynamic applications allows the identification of the best numerical strategies for integration as major building blocks for the next generation of industrial flow solvers.

The partnership is comprised of 22 organizations from 10 countries with well proven expertise in CFD guaranteeing high level research work with a clear path to industrial exploitation.

The outcome of ADIGMA will be an essential and indispensable contribution to fulfil industries' future requirements on CFD. The developed innovative algorithms and numerical technologies will enable industry to fully exploit the potential of numerical simulation. Improved simulation accuracy at reduced response time and at lower cost will allow the use of CFD as the dominant source for production of data required to drive the aerodynamic design process.

Product development time and time to market will be significantly reduced. ADIGMA is an essential step to reinforce the competitiveness of European aircraft industry in a world-wide market.
