... nd alloys. Results arising from ICARUS exploration will be materialized in specific demo compounds representative of carefully selected new alloys families that will change the present paradigm of EU aerospace industry. The most promising nanocrystallyne material identified will be synthesized by mechanical alloying and physical vapor deposition, and the obtained samples characterized toward the a ...

Development of a Machine for Multi-Material Manufacturing (4M)

Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2017,

The main goal of this project is the development of an industrial “plug & play” system for additive layer manufacturing which is based on a blown powder process using Plasma Transferred Arc (PTA) Technology. The developed 4M System will offer:a) Simple equipment concept based on well established PTA technology for hard facing coatingsb) Possibility to realize Multi-Material conceptsc) Suitability ...

The continued use of composite materials in the aerospace industry has been addressed in several past research projects which have focused on new design solutions and composite manufacturing processes. However an area which has been given much less attention up until now is how to achieve a time and cost effective lean assembly production system. The current airframe assembly process of composite ...

There are key space technologies existing at European level and during the last space calls many European projects are framed on space re-entry, but none of them dealing with radically new technologies, able to compete with technologies from other leading countries or allowing collaboration with them. The THOR project will provide knowledge in key space technologies for accessing space, through th ...

Dry lubricated Harmonic Drives for space applications (HarmLES)

Start date: Jun 1, 2011, End date: Feb 28, 2015,

On spacecrafts reduction of mass and power consumption are a major issue. On the other hand, in case of mechanisms for Solar Arrays or antennas big masses have to be moved and kept in position for long times. Harmonic Drives would fulfil the requirements: high gear ratios enable the use of small actuator motors (low mass and power), they provide high stiffness and high precision even at very low s ...

Fiber Optic System for Deflection and Damage Detection (FOS3D)

Start date: Dec 1, 2011, End date: Feb 28, 2014,

"Within the EC Clean Sky - Smart Fixed Wing Aircraft initiative concepts for actuating morphing wing structures are under development. In order for developing a complete integrated system including the actuation, the structure to be actuated and the closed loop control unit a hybrid deflection and damage monitoring system is required.The aim of the proposed project ""FOS3D"" is to develop and vali ...

"The aim of this proposal is the development of ceramic composites structures which are needed for applications in aggressive environments, where (oxidative) and temperatures are required, such as hot parts of space vehicles for orbital re-entry (reusable launcher vehicles, RLVs). The solution will be focused on re-usable systems.As expressed by the European Commission a non-dependent access to th ...

The project aims at the development of a new type of coatings based on Complex Metallic Alloys (CMA). This is a family of ternary and quaternary alloys which exhibit unexpected properties. The CMAs “Al61.5Cu25.3Fe12.2 B1” and “Al59.5Cu25.3Fe12.2 B3” consist only of metals, which show not metallic- but ceramic-like behaviour. Moreover, the bulk versions of these quasicrystals have proven outstandin ...
