Eric Laurendeau’s research is focused on the development of algorithms to study aircraft stability and control, in collaboration with Bombardier, which is doing the validation on the project. http://www.polymtl.ca/carrefour/en/article.php?no=4109
This research is focused on the development of novel numerical algorithms to study aircraft stability and control. Compute Canada infrastructure is used to perform three-dimensional calculations around complex aircraft shapes for problems with up to 100 million unknowns. The results of this research have the potential to impact Canadians by enabling Canadian companies, such as Bombardier Aerospace, to improve on their capabilities in analyzing unsteady flow phenomena upstream in the design cycle, saving significant time and cost to aircraft development schedules. This research would not be possible without Compute Canada infrastructure because it provides the only available infrastructure to perform such high-level research.
