The Department of Aerospace Engineering has been awarded a prestigious 4 year funding of 1.4 million Euro from Marie Curie Initial Training Network.
The project, called ALPES (Aircraft Loads Prediction using Enhanced Simulation), will fund five researchers to work at the University of Bristol and also on sites of two other project partners: LMS International and Airbus. The five researchers will also simultaneously be registered for a PhD programme at the University of Bristol.
ALPES which started on 1st October 2013, is led by Prof Jonathan Cooper along with his colleagues, Dr Ann Gaitonde, Dr Dorian Jones and Dr Mark Lowenberg. The aim of the network is to improve the prediction accuracy and efficiency of the loads experienced by an aircraft in-flight and on the ground.
