EU-bonus credits type B2c for UMRIDA

Project Details

Description

Virtual prototyping (VP) is a key technology for environmental friendly and cost effective design in the aircraft industry. However, the underlying analysis and simulation tools (for loads, stresses, emissions, noise), are currently applied with a unique set of input data and model variables, although realistic operating conditions are a superposition of numerous uncertainties under which the industrial products operate (uncertainties on operational conditions, on geometries resulting from manufacturing tolerances, numerical error sources and uncertain physical model parameters). Major new developments in this new scientific area of Uncertainty Management and Quantification (UM and UQ) and Robust Design methods (RDM) are needed to bridge the gap from the current State of the Art to the level of industrial readiness where large numbers of simultaneous uncertainties can be treated in analysis and design. This is the main objective of the UMRIDA project, which has the following action lines:

Address major research challenges in both UQ and RDM to develop new methods able to handle large numbers of simultaneous uncertainties, generalized geometrical uncertainties in design and analysis within a quantifiable objective of a turn-around time acceptable for industrial readiness in VP systems.

Apply the UQ and RDM methods to representative industrial configurations. To respond to the validation requirements of advanced UQ and RDM, a new generation of database, formed by industrial challenges, provided by the industrial partners, with prescribed uncertainties, is established.

The methods developed will be assessed quantitatively towards the industrial objectives on this database, during the project and at two open workshops. The gained experience will be assembled in a Best Practice Guide on UQ and RDM.

It is anticipated that the UMRIDA project will have a major impact on most of the EU objectives for air transport, by enabling design methods to take into account uncertainty based risk analysis, as the treatment of uncertainties enables a rigorous management of performance engagements and associated risks. The UMRIDA partners are 6 European airframe and engine industries, 3 SME's including the coordinator, and 13 research groups from major aeronautical research establishments and academia. One industrial partner is from Russia and one of the university partners is from the US.
