Abstract

The new engineering FASTLognoter software is presented. This code is essentially the result of the integration of two tools, along with some additional features. Thefirst basis tool is FAST (developed by NREL), a comprehensive aeroelastic simulator code for wind turbines. The [...]

Abstract

This paper presents a study of the combined influence of battery models and sizing strategy for hybrid and battery-based electric vehicles. In particular, the aim is to find the number of battery (and supercapacitor) cells to propel a light vehicle to run two different standard driving [...]

Abstract

We study a PDE-constrained optimization problem, where the shape and liner material of the nacelle of an aircraft engine are optimized in order to minimize the noise radiated by the engine. More precisely, the acoustic problem is modeled by the Helmholtz equation with varying wavenumber [...]

Abstract

This article presents the approach used for the design optimization of heavy vehicles such as urban buses and"br" delivery trucks as a part or the ORCA European Project. A methodology to find the optimal combination of"br" hardware components and energy management strategy is presented [...]

Abstract

This work is aimed at investigating the capability of a fully predictive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approach to catch the main features of the liquid flow in pipelines equipped with corrugated static mixer inserts. The simulations are based on the numerical solution of the [...]
