EC - Horizon 2020
The objective here is to develop the tools and the methodology to optimize the design of a stiffener run-out on a composite stiffened panel (stiffener geometry, thicknesses and lay-ups of different components, shape of the tapering). Based on mechanical test of typical configurations, both simulations and failure criteria will be developed for strength predictions capability. This development shall lead to a simple methodology dedicated to support the design of innovative and improved panel configurations taking into account the plain area as well as the stiffener run-out. The validation of optimised solutions will be supported by mechanical tests.

The Up2Europe idea came from a group of freelancers who work around European projects. It has finally been realised by one of them with the support of the others.
Up2Europe is the first ideas accelerator for European projects , and aims to create a virtual community for Up and coming professionals in European projects.
We believe that this kind of virtual network has not yet reached its full potential and aim to explore it fully.
We want to give the European community a specific platform where users can submit their ideas and see them accelerated into real life projects.
We want to give all available tools for users to build connections in regional areas between future partners and their local European consultants.
European institutions don't know about Up yet, but our goal is to be part of them and we hope to work together in the future as a technological partner as we share the same vision.
