Asteroid logo

ESDU was the lead in the ASTEROID research project. The objectives of ASTEROID were to investigate the aerodynamic effects of small local changes in external shape (excrescences and flow leakage); to develop enhanced methods for the modelling of these effects; and to produce software to facilitate the design, manufacture and maintenance of aeroplanes for minimum fuel burn. ASTEROID was part-funded by Innovate UK.

You can find the completed ASTEROID program here.
