Project Name: Reduced Order Modelling, Simulation and Optimisation of Coupled System (ESR2)


Product development today is increasingly based on the simulation and optimisation of virtual products and processes. Mathematical models serve as digital twins of real products and processes and are the basis for optimisation and control of design and functionality. The models have to meet very different requirements: Deeply refined mathematical models are required to understand and simulate the true physical processes, while less refined models are the prerequisites to handle the complexity of control and optimisation. ROMSOC is focused on designing, implementing, and deploying accurate digital twins of any process of interest to achieve the best performance of mathematical modelling, simulation, and optimisation techniques. In particular, in the ESR2 project, a non-destructive testing device, the Microflown PU probe, is analysed numerically using a digital twin approach. The objectives of this research project are the mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of thermo-acoustic coupled Systems (involving PU probes, the compressible fluid in the presence of flow, and the multilayer windscreen). The numerical results will play a key role in designing novel windscreens to mitigate the flow effects on the measures of acoustic probes (see attached documents for more details).

Reason for applying to services

Our knowledge of standards is focused on their classical use in experimental settings of non-destructive acoustic/mechanical measurements (for instance, the ISO-10534-1:1996 or ISO-354:2003). From the project partners’ experience, there are three main open challenges: A) how to use standardisation procedures for any stage regarding digital twins in non-destructive frameworks, B) how to transform the classical standards focused on real-world measurements into a digital twin scenario, and C) how to certify the digital twin predictions of non-destructive testings using standardisation. We believe the Standardisation Booster service could provide valuable guidance in achieving these three goals.

Main Standardisation Interests

The use of digital twins for the prediction of non-destructive testing measurements requires at least four steps: 1) design, 2) implementation, 3) validation, 4) calibration, and 5) deployment. Any of these stages are potential areas of standard applications. However, the academic and industrial partners in the ROMSOC (ESR2 project) have not been able to apply standardisation procedures to any of these stages to guarantee the reproducibility and reliability of the numerical predictions obtained from digital twins.
