From April 14 to16, Cenaero participated to the official launch of the MAAXIMUS FP7 level 2 project held in Airbus-France facilities.
The Multi-Scale Materials and Structures Modeling group of Cenaero contributes significantly to the development of the virtual platform through:
- the development of a cost model for a composite subcomponent
- the implementation of a non-local anisotropic composite damage model into Samcef
- the improvement of domain decomposition methods and substructuring approaches for non-linear structural analysis
- the adaptation of parallel computing schemes to specific hardware.
These activities are in line with the main scientific orientations of the MMM group and will help Cenaero increasing its current expertise.
