The ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation thesis prize has been awarded to Simone Coniglio for his thesis work! SapienSapienS

The ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation thesis prize has been awarded to Simone Coniglio for his thesis titled "Topological 𝗢𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗶𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 with Eulerian and Lagrangian formalism applied to the design of a propulsion unit"
A 2016 graduate of the Université de Technologie de Compiègne and the Università Politecnico di Torino, with an end-of-studies internship on the topological optimization of damping treatments at Airbus Group Innovation, Simone Coniglio began his thesis in October 2016 under the supervision of Joseph Morlier (Research Professor at ISAE-SUPAERO), Christian Gogu (Research Professor at Université Paul Sabatier) and Rémi Amargier (Doctor of Engineering at Airbus), with CIFRE financing.
His thesis deals with topological optimization applied to the primary structure integrating engines under the wings of civil aircraft. In his thesis, a framework for topological optimization is developed to improve the design of an engine pylon, engine supports and nacelles. The optimum design is obtained by taking into account the von Mises stress constraint and a requirement unique to the engine’s design, or a reduction of the variations in the play at the ends of an engine’s blades under the loads of aircraft maneuvers. He sums up his thesis for you in 3 minutes flat.
Since November 2019, Simone has been working at Airbus on topological and parametric optimization for the propulsion unit’s integration.

Erwan Lecarpentier, a doctoral student at the Department of Complex System Engineering (DISC), has received the ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation thesis prize for his work on Reinforcement Learning in a Non-stationary Environment. A 2016 ISAE-SUPAERO graduate with ENSICA engineering training, Erwan prepared his doctoral thesis at ISAE-SUPAERO and ONERA under the supervision of Emmanuel Rachelson, Professor of Automatic Learning and Optimization at ISAE-SUPAERO, and Guillaume Infantes, researcher at JoliBrain (an artificial intelligence software and service company).
After defending his thesis in 2020, Erwan continued his work with Emmanuel Rachelson and is now looking for a postdoctoral position to pursue his career in academics. Reinforcement learning is a sub-branch of automatic learning that deals with solving the problem of sequential decision-making in discrete time. It is a question of automatically learning the optimum behavior for an agent interacting with an uncertain environment.
How do you teach machines to control complex problems? Erwan sums up his thesis for you in 3 minutes flat! This thesis prize was presented by the ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation for the excellence of the research carried out and the outlook for the thesis’ applications.

Discover Eric Nguyen Van’s thesis led at ISAE-SUPAERO ISAE-SUPAERO

Discover Eric Nguyen Van’s thesis, which he defended at ISAE-SUPAERO on October 23rd. Eric is now a research engineer in aeronautical design with the Multidisciplinary Methods and Integrated Design team at ONERA’s Department of Data Processing and Systems (DTIS).
Eric worked on his thesis at the Department of Aerospace Vehicle Design and Control (DCAS), in the Decisions and Commands research group.
The title of his thesis is “Stability and lateral control of an aircraft with small vertical stabilizers through differential use of propulsion systems or actuators such as crocodile flaps . Use of co-design methods”. The goal is to offer a co-design method for designing the engine command laws and sizing the vertical stabilizer while complying with the constraints of flight quality and security, as well as to provide a benchmark with a solution that has been flight tested on a demonstrator. It was useful to create a demonstrator to study electric propulsion and lateral flight mechanics both for the CEDAR Chair and for the thesis.
Eric works with the CSDV – Systems Command and Flight Dynamics – doctoral host team and at the Systems Doctoral School (EDSYS), which includes researchers from ISAE-SUPAERO and ONERA. His work was co-supervised by Daniel Alazard and Philippe Pastor, research professors at ISAE-SUPAERO, and by Carsten Döll at ONERA.
His thesis was also financed under the CEDAR Chair (Chair for Eco-Design of AiRcraft) in a partnership with AIRBUS, whose purpose is to provide answers to the environmental issues facing the aeronautical sector by defining disruptive concepts in air transport through the inclusion of innovative technologies starting in the aircraft design stage. In 2019, this partnership was renewed, taking up the main orientations from the previous years and integrating a more comprehensive approach to environmental engineering.
ISAE-SUPAERO welcomes doctoral students to six teams at ISAE-SUPAERO, ONERA and the Clément Ader Institute, covering a wide range of scientific disciplines in relation to aeronautics and space: aerodynamics and propulsion, structures and materials, embedded systems, networks and telecommunications, systems command and control, human factors, electronics, and signals. ISAE-SUPAERO proposes a rich, diverse PhD training program, leading to a doctorate, the highest level degree awarded by the Institute and recognized internationally.
