Within Tg11-1 the phenomenological-numerical simulation strategy, developed by DLR, has been applied use cases of LOCOMACHS partners GKN, Dassault, NLR and Bombardier. The aim of this target was to demonstrate the applicability of the novel approach<

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

Enormous model complexity reduction. Very close to design process due to applicability with shell elements. Significantly reduced number of parameters required for a reliable PID prediction. Limited expert knowledge required. Fast computations without&
