We are active in some international projects


MeDiTATe (The medical digital twin for aneurysm prevention and treatment) aims to develop state-of-the-art image based medical Digital Twins of cardiovascular districts for a patient specific prevention and treatment of aneurysms.


We participated in project RBF4AERO, The Innovative benchmark technology for aircraft engineering design and efficient design phase optimisation, as project partners, together with 7 other partners. Project coordinator was Rina Consulting spa. The project is properly conceived to tackle all the aspects related to aircraft numerical design and optimization by making the CFD model parametric through an innovative shape optimization...


Fortissimo was a collaborative project that enabled European SMEs and midcaps to be more competitive globally through the use of advanced modelling, simulation and data analytics services running on an HPC Cloud-based infrastructure. Fortissimo involved SMEs, midcaps, technical experts, independent software vendors (ISVs) and HPC centres.


RIBES is the acronym of “Radial basis functions at fluid Interface Boundaries to Envelope flow results for advanced Structural analysis“. It is a research project led by the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and funded within the EU 7th framework aeronautics programme JTI-CS-GRA (Joint Technology Initiatives – Clean Sky – Green Regional Aircraft). The project started December 2014 and was...

Fortissimo 2

The core objective of Fortissimo 2 was to promote the uptake of advanced modelling, simulation and data analytics services by European small and medium enterprises in the manufacturing sector. The project built on the Fortissimo project and further developed the Fortissimo marketplace, focusing on application experiments that involve the modelling and simulation of coupled physical processes or high performance data...


It is well known that the fatigue life of a structural component copes with the initiation and propagation of a crack. Under cyclic loading, a flaw may appear on the surface of the material and progressively grow until its size becomes critical. On the other hand, singularities introduced in the shape of a structure are preferential sites of crack initiation....


The CloudiFacturing solution is designed to support manufacturing SMEs and their needs for advanced cloud- or HPC-based ICT solutions. Striving for maximal interoperability, this solution integrates manifold software and hardware platforms, which have emerged from previous projects and research initiatives.


DEMOFLY is the research program planned by UTV aimed to develop atechnological demonstrator in the nautical field.


WHAT IS EXCELLERAT? The EXCELLERAT project is a single point of access for expertise on how data management, data analytics, visualisation, simulation-driven design and Co-design with high-performance computing (HPC) can benefit engineering, especially in the aeronautics, automotive, energy and manufacturing sectors.


SPINNER is a doctoral training programme aimed at Bioengineering early stage researchers, to train bioengineers to be in a position to design the next generation of repair materials and techniques for spine surgery. SPINNER brings together partners from the biomaterials (Finceramica), implantable devices (Aesculap), and computational modelling (Ansys, Adagos) industries with orthopaedic clinicians (National Centre for Spinal Disorders, NCSD) and...
