A Study of European Commission Funded Research that incorporates the use or development of Continuum solution methods
This report presents summaries of research activities funded by the
European Commision (EC) that incorporate or have a relevance to
those areas of continuum analysis known as Finite Element, Finite
Difference, Finite Volumes, Computational Fluid Dynamics Boundary
Elements and other similar processes. The summaries were extracted
from the total range of programmes funded by the European
Commission and are not limited to the well known ESPIRIT and
BRITE/EURAM activities. It is often forgotten that there are
several communities administered by the Commission of the European
Communities – to give it its full name – each of which
has its own funding programme. These communities are the Iron and
Steel community, EURATOM, ESRO and the European Economic Community
(EEC). In addition there are the European research institutions
such as ISPRA (in Italy) that undertake their own research work in
parallel with the other activities.
As far as can be ascertained, this study is the first vertical analysis of a subject area that cuts across a diverse range of research programmes that span from AERO (the aerodynamics programme), HYDROCARB (the fuels programme) through to MAST (Marine and Ship Technology) and SCIENCE (basic scientific research).
This summary report is the first phase in that it represents a summary of funded projects. Full abstracts of the work, including in most cases contact names and participants, are held by NAFEMS and can be obtained on request. The second phase will be the collection – where possible – of copies to the public domain reports relating to these research activities and links to other relevant research work.
