The project “Empowered decision-making in simulation-based engineering: Advanced Model Reduction for real-time, inverse and optimization in industrial problems”, or AdMoRe, is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (European Training Network funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation program). The consortium consists of three academic institutions: Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Swansea University and École Centrale de Nantes, and four industrial partners: Volkswagen AG, Siemens Magner Technology, Airbus and ESI Group, all world leaders in their fields.

The project is  an industry-driven  program which aims to maintain the worldwide  leadership of the four  European  industrial partners involved. The  problems studied  within the consortium involve multi-disciplinary modelling  (i.e. solids, fluids, structures,  electromagnetics, heat, acoustics) and require managing inter-disciplinary connections  (i.e. fluid-structure interaction, electro-magneto-mechanics, thermo-mechanics,  aerodynamic noise) bridging the gaps among different formulations. Classical approaches fail in addressing these challenges for real-time and multiple-queries within a high-fidelity and accurate perspective.  In this context, the High-Performance Computing Institute (ICI) at Centrale Nantes provides its expertise to deal with complex simulations and uses its know-how to develop and implement reduced order model algorithms. Such methods are being used to account for the multidimensionality in fast and multiple-queries without suffering a dramatic increase in computational complexity, enabling the acceleration of numerical resolution.

The industrial problems tackled by the AdMoRe consortium include:
  • Interactive design and optimization of vehicles and aircrafts with high-fidelity computational tools able to capture complex flow  features,
  • Fast analysis instruments and high-fidelity benchmarking tools to validate  acquisition by means of Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanners,
  • Real-time monitoring and controlling of the manufacturing of structural parts in aerospace and automobile industries,
  • Incorporation of the latest scientific and technical developments into commercial codes.
