Main contribution to the project

In WP1, AERNNOVA will provide the requirements for quality assessment of the aeronautical demonstrator that will be a stiffened panel representative of a composite aircraft fuselage.

In WP5, AERNNOVA is the Leader of the WP and will provide its experience in simulations of manufacturing processes of composite parts and it performance in impact scenarios. Since a manufacturing process of a composite part may have a significant influence on mechanical properties and therefore in material impact behavior. The dependence of all manufacturing phases (draping, injection strategy, curing, distortion) on the final properties of the composite layup and the damage tolerance of the material, involves a deep study of each phase separately. With this knowledge obtained by simulation of all the process involved, the quality of the manufactured part and its impact behavior enough for each application, can be ensured.

In WP8, AERNNOVA will be involved in the manufacturing of the aeronautical demonstrator for validating the feasibility of the project process.
