Using Simulation to Help Aviation Industry Achieve Sustainability Goals

The Aviation Industry is committed to net Zero-Carbon Emissions by 2050. This is only achievable when aircraft integrators, engine manufacturers, and suppliers work together towards more sustainable technologies and build the ecosystem around them. A combination of measures such as sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), alternate propulsion designs (electric, hybrid or hydrogen propulsion) and operational and infrastructure improvements (retrofitting designs, aerodynamic improvements, weight reduction methods) and adoptions will contribute to achieving this objective. To meet this timeline, manufacturers must accelerate research on airframe designs and new propulsion methods. Simulation can help them not only expand their design space but also optimize their designs faster and, in a cost-effective manner.

During this presentation by Dr. Swati Saxena, a variety of physics-based simulation methods and capabilities will be discussed that can support the design, development and testing of these sustainable technologies in a virtual environment and can thus accelerate the time to market which is critical as governments and industries rush to meet the 2050 net-zero carbon goals.
