This workshop on Design in Aviation is motivated by the urgency of this high-tech sector to address the climate change by the design of innovative aircraft architectures with the help of new digitalized optimization methods and tools.
The integration of advanced multi-disciplinary simulation, optimization and big data analysis and Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools is expected to have a significant impact on all kind of systemic procedures in industrial processes and many different aspects of modern societies, e. g. mobility. In the view of the European Green Deal, which sets out how to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, the new EU Framework Programme for Research & Innovation ’Horizon Europe’ will offer opportunities for joint research and innovation activities addressing these new technologies for aviation.
Multi-disciplinary scientific computing is becoming one of the powerful design instruments used both in academic research and industrial innovations. This trend has been enhanced by the continuously increasing capabilities of computer hardware and software, of managing information and of handling big data. The handling and analysis of multi-disciplinary big data is also gaining extreme importance in the entire industrial production process, in operation and process control as well as in intelligent systems for surveillance and safety procedures.
