Multiscale Analysis of AiRframe Structures and Quantification of UncErtaintieS System

Deliverables

Dissemination and Exploitation Plan

A Dissemination and Exploitation Plan will be developed early in the project and will be reported against in the interim and final reports to ensure progress against the plan.

Review of the state of the art regarding multi-scale methods

This deliverable consists of a review of the state of the art regarding multi-scale methods, for application to typical sub-assemblies of multifunctional fuselage and large aircraft, from components

Document describing sources of modelling uncertainties

Document describing sources of modelling uncertainties in predictive virtual simulation of aerospace structures, their potential impact on the accuracy results and ranking in terms of priority for performing uncertainty quantification within a virtual testing context; additionally a sensitivity ranking for idealisation rules, the aim is to understand the margin of error we introduce by derogating from a specific idealisation rule.

Delivery of meso and macro-scale strategies & new multi-scale framework

Delivery of meso and macro-scale strategies, with particular focus on meso/macro, hot spot criteria list and their respective definition & new multi-scale framework consisting of: - Report on approach taken and structure of software - Models used for testing and validation including input data and results of preliminary system tests - Online repository containing software tools (including source code) forming the new framework - User manual containing instructions and examples of use.

Uncertainty quantification & Management tool

Uncertainty quantification Management tool will be demonstrated to provide the Topic Manager with a good set of initial results to be further developed in the project The UQ tool will have the capability for the future to plug different sensitivity methodologies
