Section: Overall Objectives


The project has several objectives : to analyze mathematically coupled PDE systems involving one or more disciplines in the perspective of geometrical optimization or control; to construct, analyze and experiment numerical algorithms for the efficient solution of PDEs (coupling algorithms, model reduction), or multi-criterion optimization of discretized PDEs (gradient-based methods, evolutionary algorithms, hybrid methods, artificial neural networks, game strategies); to develop software platforms for code-coupling and for parallel and distributed computing.

Major applications include : the multi-disciplinary optimization of aerodynamic configurations (wings in particular) in partnership with Dassault Aviation and Piaggio Aero France; the geometrical optimization of antennas in partnership with France Télécom and Thalès Air Défense (see Opratel Virtual Lab.); the development of Virtual Computing Environments in collaboration with CNES and Chinese partners (ACTRI).
