Customers  demand more complex products to be developed with shorter lead times and more cost effectiveness; Environmental and regulatory constraints as well as market expectations demand more efficient aircraft behaviour; Trade-off decisions are needed to manage the impacts of customer expectations and introduction of new technologies on operational and functional beahviour; Multi-physics analysis is needed to eliminate risks early in the design process and to accurately predict functional behaviour in the detail definition phase; Finally, Testing and certification is more and more demanding and needs to be anticipated by simulation to reduce need for repeat physical testing.


Aircraft industry has developed with the needs  for faster, more efficient and dynamic adaptable business models. The Interoperability, integration of services and support to aircraft research are the main focus for our research.
