HUST, together with partners including Nagoya University (NU) and Advanced Technology Joint Stock Company (ADT) has realized truly applicable design tools for aerospace vehicle design by combining numerical and experimental tools from CRI. The expertise from NU – leading university in Japan in the domain of aerospace training and the capability of ADT in studying and providing technical solutions for industrial applications (e.g. for number of Japanese companies like Nissan Techno, Denso, etc. in Vietnam), together with HUST researchers, had made the project feasible. The project itself has very strong educational impact and contribute to the implementation of Science and Technology development strategies for Vietnam.
The project objectives have been archived, as follows:
1) Have applicable design tools for aerospace vehicle design in place by combining numerical and experimental tools
2) Improve engagement with the aerospace industry for industrial application of developed design tools
3) Enhance training and research on aerospace in HUST and NU and strengthen cooperation between Vietnam and Japan in education and industry. This research continued creating a small network on aerospace engineering between Nagoya, HUST, MHI and some private company such as VietJet Air will be considered. Research skill, esprit of teamwork, the equipment was upgraded, strengthen the tie between Vietnamese and Japaneses student. a new simulation technology was presented
