DUST is a novel, flexible solution to solve aerodynamics problems. Started as a collaboration between A3 by Airbus and the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of Politecnico di Milano, it is meant to deliver affordable, reliable solution of aerodynamics problems on complex configurations.
Focused on scalability and flexibility in the input, geometry definition, movement, and solution phase DUST allows the users to analyze diverse configurations with increasing and scalable levels of fidelity.
Oh, and it is free!

We are a small team of young researchers at the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology. We are all Ph.D.s in aerospace engineering and we have experience in most of the aerodynamics fields, from experimental aerodynamics to high performance computing.
Years of wind tunnel testing, cfd computations, high performance development and aerodynamics research are all joined in the effort to develop DUST, in order to develop a practical, reliable and fast platform for mid-fidelity aerodynamics predictions.
Or, why DUST is called DUST? We were planning to keep it a vague secret, but since someone started suggesting it was some unspeakable acronym we thought it was better to clarify what DUST meant. Which is nothing… Just in our case! According to Wikipedia dust are still fine particles of solid matter, however in […]
This is one of the first whiteboards we filled with our preliminary ideas about a year ago. It was just few days before when I was being approached by Alex Zanotti proposing me to join the DUST project, which was about to start. Just the time to archive several terabytes of LES data, relocate my […]
