NLR strives for an efficient exploitation of CFD technologies in the search for optimal solutions to engineering problems faced by aerospace industry. NLR is prepared to collaborate in a partnership with industry, where knowledge transfer from NLR to industry will be an important aspect throughout the initiation phase (Veni), the setup phase (Vidi), and the Computing/Analysis phase (Vici).
eCFD stimulates an intensive close collaboration, as not only NLR but also the industrial partner will have the opportunity to take an initiative to start a new eCFD session (c.q. a new email discussion thread). By the notion of email discussion thread, eCFD sessions constitute a documentation of activities, investigation and exhange of ideas.
(Of course, eCFD does not preclude the possibility of a conventional telecon or face-to-face meeting, should the need arise during the collaboration.)
