MOTOR is an EU-funded H2020 project which started in September 2015 and has a duration of three years with a contribution of € 4,302,875.00. The consortium is formed by 11 partners from industry, academia and national research institutes. The project is coordinated by TU Delft and aims at developing a unified approach for simulation-driven multi-objective design optimization of fluid energy machines, in particular, aircraft engines, ship propellers, water turbines, and twin-screw machines. The overall goal is to enable the design of more efficient machines and, at the same time, to reduce the time to production and increase mass-customization capacities to make Europe’s manufacturing industry more competitive.
