The official kick-off meeting of the SIMBA project (FEDER 2007-2013) took place on September 14.
Responding to a demand coming from the industry, the goal of this project is to develop skills and advanced simulation methodologies for the construction sector using the expertise aquired and developed by Cenaero in the aeronautic field, and with the support of partners specialized in the construction sector.
The use of such numerical tools in the construction field is essential in the environmental and economical context our society is currently facing. This is dictated by the increasing demand for energy-efficient buildings, reducing their energy consumption and ecological footprint, reducing their design cycles and including technical/economical optimization of the materials involved.
The project involves 5 partners: Cenaero (project leader), CSTC, ULg-Aero, ULg-Argenco and UCL-Architecture et Climat.
