Abstract Every day, society is demanding more efficient, safer, affordable and environmental friendly products. To do that, industry needs to innovate by developing new methods and tools able to obtain superior performances of their competitors. This is the main topic of SSeCoID´s research: to develop new methods and tools for design in order to enhance their industrial performance. SSeCoID will demonstrate its innovations by applying the new methods & tools to different problems of aeronautics and mechanical engineering, and will provide very specialized training to 15 researchers to make these novel technologies available to relevant industrial sectors. SSeCoID proposes to work in the: Development of new numerical methods and tools better suited for unsteady flows: stability analysis and high fidelity simulation, capable of capturing and controlling the growth of small perturbations in stable flows and able to provide enhanced accuracy. Identification of the features causing unsteadiness, acoustic, flow detachment or lack of performance of current aerodynamic configurations; Investigation of control/suppression of unsteady flow through flow control devices or surface modifications, by identifying the most suitable zones that have most influence on the flow features; Multidisciplinary evaluation of the most promising applications in relevant problems proposed by industry, including detached flows, acoustic feedback, flow induced vibration, inkjet or race car design; assessment of technical feasibility; potential of control devices for flow instability suppression or delay. Training 15 new researchers in the development of most advanced methods for simulation, feature detection, stability and flow control techniques applied to industrial design. Disseminate the project results in international forums and non-specialized public. Exploit the project results in new patents that include new designs and methods more stable and easy to control.
