International TechneGroup Ltd. (ITI) has received a three-year R&D grant award from the UK Government, supported by the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), for participation in the AuGMENT project.
In collaboration with Cambridge Flow Solutions (CFS), the lead partner on this initiative, the computer-aided engineering specialists will support the development of leading-edge advanced geometry processing and automated meshing solutions for the aerospace industry.
Through the AuGMENT project grant, ITI and CFS will engage to develop advanced tools for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) geometry preparation and meshing that will allow engineering simulation to participate fully and effectively in the earliest stages of industrial design.
“The goals of the project are to create a hybrid CFD meshing capability that combines the unique geometry handling strengths of ITI’s CADfix tool with the digital geometry and meshing strengths of CFS’ BoXeR tool. The intended result is to offer CFD analysts the best of both worlds.”
The project is receiving funding from the joint industry and government funding commitment for aerospace R&D, a partnership between the ATI, Innovate UK and Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
