RIBES is a research project led by the university of Rome “Tor Vergata” and funded by the European Union within the Green Regional Aircraft topic of the CLEAN SKY JOINT UNDERTAKING programme.
Its objective is the development and validation of methodologies and software tools for the improvement of accuracy in numerical FSI (Fluid–structure interaction) analyses.
Development of a load mapping procedure for 2 way FSI analysis tools
Definition of an aeroelastic experimental campaign for aeroelastic analysis tools validation
Development of a structural shape optimization procedure
The RIBES measurement campaign was aimed to the development of an experimental database suitable to validate aeroelastic analysis numerical tools against a test case representative of a realistic aeronautical structure. All measurements, geometries, numerical models and solutions of the numerical/experimental activities performed within the project is made freely available to the scientific community. The wish is the RIBES test case to constitute an enhancement for information sharing between scientists and a framework for further discussions, research activities, proposals and collaborations.
