A NEW INTEGRATED MULTISCALE SCIENCE-ENGINEERING SCENARIO FOR AEROSPACE R&D AND ENGINEERING

Alessandro Formica, Mario Pasta

Abstract


New challenges characterize technology innovation: increasing complexity and a widening range of time and space scales involved. Relationships between science and engineering are changing,  making technology development and engineering increasingly dependent on scientific knowledge. Costs and times to develop innovative  systems are not decreasing, instead, they are positively going up . Evolutionary improvements over classical R&D and engineering methodologies are not up to the challenge, and a new Integrated Science-Engineering Framework, based on the Multiscale concept is needed. Multliscale    represents  a new   "Unifying Paradigm" i.e. a  common theoretical context and language to enable a real  integration of science and engineering visions, models, and methods. This new Framework is the field where we can shape  a new cooperative landscape among university, research, and industry, and define new planning methodologies for complex R&D and engineering processes.
