December 14th, 2022 the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” guested the workshop titled “Digital Twin for Aerospace”. The event was an occasion for researchers and engineers, from both academia and industry, to present the status of research on numerical analysis and design methodologies in the aerospace field. The topics focused on methods suitable to improve the design process of aircraft, rockets and satellites but it also offered the opportunity to highlight how other fields of engineering can benefit from the availability of numerical tools able to efficiently model the physics involved in complex mechanical systems.

It is many years that the world of sailing has become popular, mainly thanks to the “Amerca’s Cup”, a competition that arouses media interest also because at each edition there are technological innovations that increasingly capture the attention and curiosity of even non-enthusiasts. .
Our phd student Giovanna Gargiulo explains in detail the objectives of EXCELLERAT project. The goal of my research is the DT(Digital Twin) of an OT (Operating Theater): from CFD(Computer Fluid Dynamics)to DT. The design of an OT is a complex task and requires a multidisciplinary approach, that includes techniques from engineering and medical sciences. In this scenario the Digital Twin could be a helpful in design, in control and manutention operations. OT problems are related with environmental control and with the design of an appropriate HVAC(Heating ventilating Air Conditional) system to prevent the riskof infections during surgical operations maintain ing a comfort condition for the patient and the surgical staffinthe same time.
BIOMA is a key conference specifically focusing on bioinspired optimisation methods and their applications. This international conference provides an opportunity to the global research community in bioinspired optimisation to discuss recent research results and develop new ideas and collaborations in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Simulation had a major impact in Our life, changing the way we think and design new products. From aerospace, to civil and biomedical, to name a few, all the fields of engineering have been interested by this ongoing revolution. We can safely say that the engineer of the 21ST century can inspect, study, design and improve like never before.
