*** Press Release ***
Gosselies, November 13th, 2008.
is pleased to announce the official signature on November 12th, 2008 of a cooperation agreement between the French Aerospace Research Organization Onera
, Recognized Research Centre of the Walloon Region developing tools and methodologies in simulation for Aeronautics.
This agreement is focused on the development of the software elsA
. The agreement, with initial validity of 3 years, states basically that Cenaero
will have the opportunity - in tight collaboration with Onera
- to develop axial turbomachinery features in elsA in the scope of Cenaero's activities with partners like Techspace Aero in Belgium and Snecma in France.
Since March 7th 2007, Cenaero
became officially a trusted R&D partner of the Safran Group. In this context, Cenaero
performs industrial aerodynamic and aero-mechanical optimizations for different parts of aircraft engines using elsA
. To reach its objectives, Cenaero
can count on modern HPC center
equipped with 2000 computing cores, ad hoc optimization software developed by Cenaero
engineers - Minamo
, but also the impressive know-how and valuable experience of Cenaero
is also deeply involved and prooved added-value in mechanical projects as well, starting from virtual manufacturing
and ranging up to complex fracture mechanics
problems solved by Morfeo
, the non-linear FEM solver developed by Cenaero
