Design Optimization

Altaventus conducts comprehensive optimization studies for a range of objective functions subject to complex constraints. Moreover, customized frameworks with 3rd party software can be built. Few examples of our past and current activities are shared below.

  • Problem Characterization – Gradient-Based and Derivative Free Methods

  • Shape Optimization – Aircraft, sub-systems

Sensitivity Analysis

Altaventus uses multiple approaches to identify the most influential parameters on outputs as well as help assess what kind of optimization routines are most suitable for problems Few examples of our past and current activities are shared below.

  • Design Space Exploration – Problem Characterization

  • Design Variable Types – Epistemic and Aleatory

  • Sampling – DoE-DACE via Monte Carlo, Latin Hypercube Sampling

  • Design Variables – Ordering variables according to influence on outputs

Uncertainty Quantification

Altaventus uses novel techniques to forward propagate input uncertainties through computational models to assess the system characteristics. Few examples of our past and current activities are shared below.

  • Quantification of Safety Margins – Local and Global

  • Stochastic Expansions – Polynomial Chaos Expansion
