The Probabilistic Analysis Consortium for Engines (PACE), developed and managed by the Ohio Aerospace Institute (OAI) under contract with the Air Force Research Laboratory, is collaborating with SmartUQ to develop a probabilistic framework for quantifying uncertainties in the secondary flow and heat transfer model for turbine engines, SmartUQ said.
OAI formed PACE to develop, apply and validate advanced probabilistic methods that quantify uncertainty, achieving improvements in engine performance, cost and reliability.
Under their subcontract, SmartUQ will employ advanced statistical methods to quantify and predict uncertainty in key output parameters of the secondary flow model. Additionally, SmartUQ´s approach will reduce the time needed for this analysis.
SmartUQ, a premier uncertainty quantification and analytics software, employs a team of data scientists and engineers whose combined expertise have enhanced the analytic capabilities of their industry-leading clients.
SmartUQ is an engineering analytics software company founded in 2014 and based in Madison, Wisconsin. Its software utilizes breakthrough statistical techniques to rapidly quantify all forms of uncertainties. SmartUQ statistical tools accelerate design cycles by reducing design iterations, improve design robustness and maximize insight of complex systems by quantifying uncertainties.
OAI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. Its mission is to enhance their partners´ aerospace competitiveness through research and technology development, workforce preparedness, and engagement with global networks for innovation and advocacy.
