Title: HPC applications at DLR for the design, analysis and performance evaluation of highly agile aircraft configurations
The content of the lecture focuses on the use of HPC within the DLR project Diabolo on the development of methods and processes for the design and performance assessment of highly agile aircraft configurations. In Diabolo technology developments through a large spectrum of disciplines for aircraft design are considered. The main focus in Diabolo is the design of a virtual demonstrator to capture technological gaps and to demonstrate the design and assessment capabilities of the methods and processes developed at DLR.
The technology spectrum ranges from aerodynamics, structure and aeroelasticity, control system design, the layout of a control concept and flight mechanics analysis, technologies and the design of a propulsion concept and the determination of radar, infrared and acoustic signature properties.
The tasks of the Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology in Braunschweig and Göttingen in particular are the development of the overall design environment as well as the validation of the DLR RANS method TAU for vortex-dominated flows in subsonic and supersonic speeds, experimental and numerical aerodynamic studies for the design and understanding of the fluid physics and aerodynamic performance of highly agile aircraft configurations, the numerical aerodynamic optimization, the design and evaluation of highly integrated engine intakes and thrusters, the investigation of dynamic control elements as well as further development of high-precision measurement techniques.
