TAU User Meeting 2011

October 18 + 19, 2011
DLR Braunschweig


The TAU User Meeting was intended to give TAU users in academia and industry the opportunity to demonstrate their applications, to share their experiences and to discuss their needs with specialists. Recent TAU developments were highlighted and future activities discussed.

The talks covered the following topics:

  • fixed-wing aircraft,
  • rotary-wing aircraft,
  • defense applications,
  • spacecraft,
  • TAU Developments.

A poster session during coffee breaks was devoted to results of the MUNA national research project on uncertainties in numerical simulation.

The TAU User Meeting was concluded by a panel discussion with members of the development team.

A flyer with detailed information can be found here.
