Contribution to Analysis of Rotor Hub Drag Reduction (CARD)

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

"A major source of helicopter drag, about 30% of the total, is from the rotor hub. It is important that the drag generated by a helicopter, and hence emissions, is reduced. This research programme is to be undertaken to investigate this subject and investigate potential techniques to achieve reductions in hub drag. A wind tunnel test programme is to be carried out to provide a large, high-quali ...

Smart High Lift Devices for Next Generation Wings (SADE)

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

"All aerodynamic concepts for significant reduction of drag such as laminarisation require slim high-aspect-ratio wings. However, state-of-the-art high lift systems will suffer from the reduced construction space and do not cope with the required surface quality. Thus, SADE (Smart High Lift Devices for Next Generation Wings) develops suitable 'morphing' high lift devices: The seamless 'smart leadi ...

Acoustic Design Of High-lift Architectures (ADOCHA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Nov 30, 2010,

"Regulation of the sound production of aircraft is becoming stricter, in part due to an increase in the noise generated due to the rising numbers and size of aircraft. As a result identification and reduction of the major sources of sound, particularly in the take-off and landing phases when the aircraft is close to population centres, is paramount. High lift devices, particularly during the landi ...
