One of the first optimization tasks carried out with modeFRONTIER速 was the minimization of mass while keeping the device performance in presence of temperature gradients (see  for
More recently modeFRONTIER® has been introduced in the design of RadioFrequency cavities (the devices that transfer energy to the electrons traveling in the accelerator). Moreover, modeFRONTIER® multi-disciplinary approach efficiently wrapped electromagnetism, structural and heat transfer in the same optimization loop. Last but not least some preliminary work has been done in order to use the system in the automation of the post-processing of experimental data (see  for more details) opening a new scenario for a pervasive use of modeFRONTIER® in leading edge research.
