Aeroelastic Gust Modelling
AeroGust (Aeroelastic Gust Modelling) is a collaborative research project between industry and academia funded by the European Union’s
Research and Innovation programme under grant agreement number 636053.
The project seeks to drive the competitiveness of European Aviation through cost efficiency and innovation and has taken inspiration from
Flight Path 2050
whose goals include maintaining and extending industrial leadership. Further transfer of technology to the wind turbine industry will increase the renewable energy sector.
In summary the impacts of AeroGust will include:
Reduced reliance on wind tunnel testing
Reduced conservatism by improving accuracy and robustness
Faster exploration of the design space through updating Reduced Order Models
More accurate wind turbine load predictions
Project partners in AeroGust are:
France: INRIA, Dassault Aviation, Valeol SAS
Germany: DLR (Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology, Institute of Aeroelasticity), Airbus Defence and Space
Italy: Optimad Engineering, PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES SPA
South Africa: University of Cape Town
United Kingdom: University of Bristol (project lead), The University of Liverpool
