On campus at Stanford, research efforts are focused on exploring the possibility
of developing a non-uniform implementation of the Time-Spectral Method. The hope is
to use this new implementation in conjunction with the time-spectral adjoint to
propose a scheme in which both the amount and spacing of Fourier collocation
points are automatically chosen on the basis of local error estimation.
On base at NASA Ames, research efforts are focused on the modeling and
optimization of various rotorcraft configurations that are of interest to
the Army. The "Helios" software package, which is currently
under development at the Aeroflightdynamics Directorate, will be used to
implement and test numerical methods and optimization schemes developed on
campus at Stanford.
None to report just yet.
