Outline

This EPSRC Industrial CASE 4 year PhD Scholarship is in collaboration with Airbus, and will include a period of training at their research facility in Filton.

The project aims to build a Bayesian inference-based data-driven optimisation framework for robust design and optimisation of aircraft structures under a set of stringent design constraints imposed by considerations of weight penalty, flexibility in flight conditions, flight envelopes and risk minimisation.
