1) Desenvolupar activitats de recerca i transferència de tecnologia i obtenir resultats que aportin un progrés en els àmbits de les enginyeries aeronàutica i industrial. Aquest objectiu es basa en el fet del potencial multidisciplinari que, tant en recursos humans com materials, té l'ETSEIT, així com en el potencial aeronàutic que, com a conseqüència de la impartició de la nova titulació d'Enginyeria Aeronàutica, està assolint. Aquest grup de recerca permetrà alhora que tot el nou personal docent i d'investigació de l'àrea de coneixement d'Enginyeria Aeroespacial que s'incorpori a l'Escola (aquest PDI tindrà adscripció orgànica i funcional a l'Escola) pugui tenir el marc i la infraestructura adequats per a la recerca. 2) Facilitar la recerca al personal docent i d'investigació de l'ETSEIT. L'existència d'aquest grup, dirigit i tutelat per l'Escola, permet que ningú que vulgui estar integrat en un grup de recerca no quedi marginat, ja que es tracta d'un grup obert a tot el PDI de l'ETSEIT. 3) Establir col·labo

The group's aims are the following: 1) To carry out research and technology transfer activities. To achieve results that contribute to the progress of the fields of aeronautical and industrial engineering. These objectives are supported by the multidisciplinary potential, both in terms of human resources and material, of the ETSEIT, as well as the expertise in aeronautics that has been made available by the introduction of the new degree in this field. The research group will ensure that all of the School?s new academic and research staff in the field of aeronautical engineering will have an adequate framework and infrastructure in which to carry out their research. 2) To promote and facilitate the academic and research staff?s work. The group, which is directed and supervised by the School, is open to all staff members who wish to participate. 3) To collaborate with other research groups at the ETSEIT and at UPC in general. The ETSEIT holds a privileged position that enables it to unite forces, particularly

  • Review of Lambert's problem 

    Torre Sangrà, David de la; Fantino, Elena (2015)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Lambert’s problem is the orbital boundary-value problem constrained by two points and elapsed time. It is one of the most extensively studied problems in celestial mechanics and astrodynamics, and, as such, it has always ...
  • Analysis of perturbations and station-keeping requirements in highly-inclined geosynchronous orbits 

    Fantino, Elena; Flores Le Roux, Roberto Maurice; Di Salvo, Alessio; Di Carlo, Marilena (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    There is a demand for communications services at high latitudes that is not well served by conventional geostationary satellites. Alternatives using low-altitude orbits require too large constellations. Other options are ...
  • A meshless finite point method for three-dimensional analysis of compressible flow problems involving moving boundaries and adaptivity
