General Description

Engys specialise in the application, development and support of CFD and optimisation software for industry. En- gys is a group of engineers and software developers with more than 10 year experience each in management and delivery of CAE solutions across various industrial sectors, including automotive, aerospace, built environments, consumer products and others. Extensive experience (+10 years) in the use of OPENFOAM and many other commercial CAE codes, such as Fluent, CFX, StarCCM+, Star-CD, ANSA, ICEM-CFD, CATIA, SolidWorks, Ensight, Paraview, etc. Strong background on CFD for low speed external aerodynamics. Engys methods are fully suitable to calculate the aerodynamic response of the cruiser/feeder concept operating at low Mach numbers in low density air. Extensive experience (+8 years) in the application of multi-disciplinary optimisation tech- niques using commercial and Open Source tools (e.g. modeFRONTIER, DAKOTA), including: Design Of Ex- periments (DOE), Optimisation algorithms, Sensitivity/Statistical Analysis, Robust design and reliability design (uncertainty quantification), Surrogate and regression models for prediction and data mining, Development of a native solver in OPENFOAM for Adjunct topology and shape optimisation, including determination of surface sensitivities based on predefined objective cost functions.
