Development of computer-based optimisation to improve hypersonic aerodynamic design. (2014–2017)
Next-generation launch vehicles using high-speed jet engines will make it cheaper and more reliable for humankind to engage in activities in space. This project will contribute to the technology of high-speed jet engines by developing optimised air intake systems. The research aims to advance the use of computational engineering and apply this to improve the design of air intake systems. The outcomes of this project will advance the technology of high-speed jet engines with the goal of replacing existing rocket systems.
