ERCOFTAC COURSE: Design Optimization II: Methods and Applications, Volkswagen AG, Wolfsburg, Germany, 10th - 11th April 2013


ERCOFTAC COURSE: Design Optimisation: Methods and Applications, EADS-CASSIDIAN, Manching, Germany, 15th - 16th November 2011

ERCOFTAC is proud to announce a two day course on Design Optimisation: Methods and Applications.

Coordinators: Prof. Kyriakos Giannakoglou, NTUA, Dr. Werner Haase, Haase Consultancy

The course will provide:

•An overview of modern design optimisation methods
•Comprehensive discussions on the presented methods including their pros and cons, assisting industrial engineers to select the best-suited approach for solving their particular problems.
•Based on the latter topic, successfully treated examples in the areas of aeronautics, the automotive, and the turbo-machinery industry will be presented and thoroughly discussed.
