The Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe is the European Technology Platform for Aeronautics and Air Transport (AAT) that provides guidance for the future of the European aeronautics research. ACARE previous roadmap, the Strategic Research Agenda, was highly of inspiration for EC work programme elaboration on Aeronautics and Aviation. In 2011 the European Commission published the Fl ...

Even though composite materials are more and more used in modern airframes, many significant improvements are still achievable. Firstly, the substitution of the assembly of many small composite parts by a single one-shot large part provides additional weight reduction. Secondly, the final assembly line process must be adapted to composite properties (lack of ductility, stiffness). Thirdly, if the ...

Thermal Overall Integrated Conception of Aircraft (TOICA)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2016,

Thermal behaviour of aircraft has recently become a crucial subject due to many factors: increasing number of complex systems required by modern, more electric, commercial aircraft, the introduction of hotter engines with higher by-pass ratios, the increased use of composite material in aircraft structures, or the confinement of highly dissipative equipment and systems in smaller areas to earn spa ...

Cost Effective Reinforcement of Fastener Areas in Composites (CERFAC)

Start date: Oct 1, 2010, End date: Dec 31, 2014,

"CERFAC’s major challenge is the design and manufacturing of strong and cost-efficient joints for high performance CFRP aero-structures.In particular, transfer of distributed loading along rivets lines in the assembly of flat or curved thin-walled stiffened panels, and introduction of concentrated loads for connecting lugs with thicker laminates are special & frequent problems. Hence, CERFAC focus ...

Heavy Payload Helicoper for Last Mile Rescue (HELI4RESCUE)

Start date: Aug 1, 2012, End date: Jun 30, 2014,

The proposal addresses the possibility for Civil Security operators to use large air transport systems for deploying heavy loads on crisis sites (last mile). It investigates in particular the deployment in civil missions of systems which are now targeted only for military use. A broad range of European Civil Security users will be involved in developing appropriate requirements for offering transp ...

HIRF Synthetic Environment (HIRF SE)

Start date: Dec 1, 2008, End date: May 31, 2013,

"The HIRF SE research project has the goal of providing the aeronautics industry with a framework which can be used during the development phase to mitigate the EM aspects. In addition it will provide a considerable reduction in the certification/qualification tests required on air vehicle. The HIRF SE main objectives can be summarized by the two followings items: • Full validated and integrated s ...

"NEEDS and CONCEPTS: Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) will be very important for Aeronautics. A study from Goodrich stated: "Structural Health Monitoring shows a great potential in terms of cost savings coming from the benefits it would have on inspections which are currently about 25% of the Life Cycle Cost of an airline". Some applications are intended to explore the “out-of-flight domain” con ...

"The ATAAC project aims at improvements to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods for aerodynamic flows used in today’s aeronautical industry. The accuracy of these is limited by insufficient capabilities of the turbulence modelling / simulation approaches available, especially at the high Reynolds numbers typical of real-life flows. As LES will not be affordable for such flows in the next 4 d ...

EXTreme ICing Environement (EXTICE)

Start date: Jun 1, 2008, End date: May 31, 2012,

"More recent aircraft incidents and accidents have highlighted the existence of icing cloud characteristics beyond the actual certification envelope defined by the JAR/FAR Appendix C, which accounts for an icing envelope characterized by water droplet diameters up to 50 μm (so-called cloud droplet). The main concern is the presence of super-cooled large droplets (SLD) such as freezing drizzle, in ...

Aerodynamic loads estimation at extremes of the flight envelope (ALEF)

Start date: May 1, 2009, End date: Apr 30, 2012,

"ALEF's objective is to enable the European aeronautical industry to create complete aerodynamic models of their aircraft based on numerical simulation approaches within the respective development processes. I.e. ALEF will kick-off a paradigm shift from greater confidence in experimentally measured loads data to greater confidence in computational results. Beyond the scope of ALEF this paradigm sh ...

valiDation of Radical Engine Architecture systeMs (DREAM)

Start date: Feb 1, 2008, End date: Jan 31, 2012,

"Since the publication of the ACARE goals, the commercial and political pressure to reduce CO2 has increased considerably. DREAM is the response of the aero-engine community to this pressure. The first major DREAM objective is to design, integrate and validate new engine concepts based on open rotor contra-rotating architectures to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions 7% beyond the ACARE 2020 ...

AIRCRAFT INTEGRATED STRUCTURAL HEALTH ASSESSMENT II (AISHA II)

Start date: May 1, 2008, End date: Oct 31, 2011,

"The safe use of complex engineering structures such as aircrafts can only be guaranteed when efficient means of damage assessment are in place. Whereas the design of civil structures is nowadays based on a damage tolerance approach and time based inspection cycles, it is envisaged that the large cost associated with this approach can be drastically reduced by switching to a condition based mainte ...
