13th World Congress in Computational Mechanics

We would like to cordially invite you to contribute to the mini-symposium (MS-1315) “Computational Mechanics in Complex Product Development" that we are organizing as part of the 13th World Congress in Computational Mechanics (WCCMXIII) in New York City (USA) on 22-27 July 2018. WCCMXIII is expected to be one of the largest Computational Mechanics gatherings in the world, with an overwhelming participation from all parts of the globe, representing multiple sectors, including academia and industry.

The aim of this symposium is to better connect the fields of Computational Mechanics with Product Development and, in doing so, to foster more intense scientific exchange between academia and industry (see http://www.wccm2018.org/MS_1315 for further details).

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Modelling for early design stages, including physically motivated surrogate models, model reduction, mathematical surrogate modeling, response surface technologies, - Advanced optimization methods for multi-disciplinary optimization, commonality optimization, solution space optimization,
  • Epistemic uncertainty modeling for the treatment of lack of knowledge and model uncertainties in early design stages.

Abstract submission and registration is already open (see www.wccm2018.org/abstract-submission). The short abstract (limit of 400 words) submission deadline is on 31 December 2017, but since we would like to to plan our mini-symposium sessions well ahead, we ask you to confirm participation of yourself or of one of your co-workers as soon as possible (by e-mail directly to us). We look forward to meeting you in New York City in July 2018.

TUM Team gewinnt DLR/NASA Design Challenge

Das Team mit Christian Decher (Propulsion System), Daniel Metzler (Aircraft Concept und Structural Design) sowie Soma Varga (Aerodynamik) überzeugten mit ihrem Urban Liner Konzept die DLR und NASA Jury bei der DLR/NASA Design Challenge und gewannen in der Kategorie „Low Noise Subsonic Design“.

Im Rahmen einer Studienarbeit unterstützte der LLB das Team im Flugzeug-Struktur-Entwurf. Die Integration von E-Fans im Flügel stellten neue Herausforderungen an den Flügel-Rumpf-Übergang, sodass ein neuer Weg zur üblichen klassischen Center-Wing-Box gesucht und strukturmechanisch untersucht wurde. Geringe Lastumleitungen und möglichst keine unnötige Platzverschwendung im Rumpf führten zum Gewinner Konzept mit einer im Rumpf kontinuierlich integrierten Center-Wing-Box.

Herzlichen Glückwünsch an das Gewinner Team!
