AirTN-NextGen Workshop on Virtual testing, towards virtual certification

May 25, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm

Multidisciplinary industrial problems with low degree of confidence and extensive experimental verification

Introduction and objectives
Where currently extensive experimental verification is needed, further development of design and simulation capabilities may increase the competitiveness of industry. In this workshop the focus will be on the theme of key isolated or clustered multidisciplinary aeronautics industrial problems with presently low degree of confidence in design and simulation and that therefore need extensive experimental verification. The development and validation of tools for this theme is indicated as a priority area in topic MG-1.3-2017 of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2016-2017 for Smart, green and integrated transport. With this theme, both short and long term needs in virtual testing and certification are addressed in this workshop.

In a previous workshop AirTN NextGen has focused on the analysis of cluster of simulation capabilities for the development of virtual testing and virtual certification. Building upon the outcome of the previous workshop the objectives for this workshop are:

  • To identify the need and solutions to reduce extensive experimental verification
  • To identify the need and solutions to increase the level of confidence in simulation

Also specific constraints to go from validation to virtual certification will be addressed. The workshop will also address the opportunities for coordination offered at European level in Horizon 2020 (e.g., in the indicative work programme 2017 on Transport). The workshop aims to gather research policy makers, regulatory authority, large industries, SMEs, research establishments, and academia.

Agenda and logistics

The workshop is held on 25 May 2016 between 10h00 and 17h30. NLR Amsterdam is located closely to the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
