EU Funds BSC Researcher to Develop New Aircraft Simulation Tools

BSC researcher Xevi Roca will receive a one of the European Union’s most prestigious research grants for a project to create new simulation methods to respond to the aviation industry’s most pressing challenges. Roca, who has been working on geometry for aeronautical simulation since 2004, is proposing to integrate time as a dimension into the geometries of simulations. The aim is to improve the efficiency, accuracy and robustness of the aerodynamic performance simulations carried out on supercomputers such as BSC’s MareNostrum.
