The MUSIC-haic project is being carried out by a consortium (led by ONERA, The French Aerospace Lab) made up of 14 partners from 4 different EU member states and the Russian Federation. The consortium consists of ONERA, CIRA, TU Braunschweig, TU Darmstadt, Airbus Defence and Space GmbH (Airbus Central Research & Technology), GE Deutschland Holding GmbH and their third party General Electric Company Polska Spolka z Ograniczona Odpowiedzialnoscia, Rolls-Royce plc, Safran Aircraft Engines, Airbus Operations SAS, Dassault Aviation, ANDHEO, ARTTIC and Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & CO KG.


ANDHEO is a French SME owned and created in 2007 by two former ONERA PhD students, Dr Tristan Soubrié and Dr Guillaume Turpin. ANDHEO provides to industrial and research organisations services involving 3D fluid and thermal simulation. With more than 70 references in several industrial sectors (mainly aeronautics 80%, but also building, health, transportation, electronics, sports, cosmetics, energy…), ANDHEO helps its customers to improve the design of their products and increase the efficiency of their processes, in particular in terms of energy consumption. Based on a partnership with ONERA, ANDHEO has access to the most advanced scientific software for simulating complex physical problems, including gas and liquid flows, particles transportation, heat transfers, radiation, etc. One of these tools is CEDRE, the multi-physics simulation platform dedicated to energetics application. Using this tool, ANDHEO provide for 10 years computations to the department at SAFRAN AICRAFT ENGINES dedicated to external aggression: this includes ingestion of sand, rain, hail, and ice.

Role in the project

ANDHEO has a 10-year experience in the use of CEDRE software for the simulation of particles ingestion in aircraft engines developed by SAFRAN AICRAFT ENGINES, using both Lagrangian and Eulerian approaches. ANDHEO has also strong experience in the simulation of aerodynamic fields around aircraft, involving ONERA’s elsA software as used by AIRBUS COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT, which is the base to any simulation implying particles transportation such as ice crystals. In MUSIC-haic, ANDHEO will bring its knowledge and experience on the simulation of real and large industrial configurations, to validate the new ICI models and develop adapted post-processing and analysing procedures. ANDHEO also intends to extend its skills in the simulation of aggression, today limited to engines, to aircraft (especially around nozzle where sensors are located). As such, ANDHEO is involved in tasks dedicated to respectively preliminary and final assessments of CEDRE simulation capabilities, both on jet engine and aircraft probe configurations.
