Airbus Numerical Simulation and Design (ANSD)

ATI-supported project ANSD (Airbus Numerical Simulation and Design) addresses the need to develop specific simulation and design technologies fundamental to future capability to undertake aerodynamic and multidisciplinary (MD) design. It will research techniques to provide new technologies to the Airbus simulation toolset for exploitation on aircraft design. Airbus has collaborated with partners ARA and Altran-Xype.

This project was made up of three work packages, each with a specific topic and set of deliverables:

  • Meshing Technologies – focused on the next generation of meshing capabilities
  • Aerodynamic Design – focused on aircraft representation for optimisation and multidisciplinary (MD) trade
  • Integrated Capability – focused on a more efficient MD simulation and design process
