Feasibility study completed

December 2021

Following a 6-month study, the team of Turbine MachineGenes has established the feasibility of evolving and growing explicit 'digital twins' (computational models) of sophisticated double-spool aviation engines from very short segments of available (noise-polluted, partial) sensor data, as if those digital twins were living organisms. This involves massively-parallel computing architectures, evolving high-complexity explicit models of thermodynamics and fluid flow.
